Children and Young People

Children and young people inspire plan

Northumberland’s Children and Young People’s (CYPP) Partnership will reaffirm its commitment to children and young people in Northumberland during a ‘virtual’ day of celebration on Tuesday 22 June.

The partnership which formed a Children and Young People’s Plan in 2019 with the help of children and young people in Northumberland will reflect on its priorities throughout the day and its commitment to those in the county to give them the best start in life.

The day will give children, young people and their families a chance to understand more about the plan, what it is for and how young people in the county can get involved and have their say.

Councillor Guy Renner-Thompson, cabinet member with responsibility for children’s services, said: “The Children and Young People’s plan sets out the partnership’s commitment, hopes and ambitions for children and young people in the future.

“Having been developed by children and young people, for children and young people, with their views, hopes and expectations, it is now time to feedback and speak with those children and young people to see how far the plan has come during its first year and to see, and hear, how the priorities have been met”.

The Children and Young People’s Plan outlines the six most important priorities for children and young people in Northumberland.
These are:  
  • To know that their voice will influence decisions that affect them.
  • To have the Best Start in Life.
  • For services to work together towards tackling any form of disadvantage.
  • To have access to the best quality education to prepare them for adult life.
  • To feel safe and supported and able to cope with life’s ups and downs.
  • To promote and support children and young people to be healthy. 
The plan has given children and young people a chance to start a conversation about what matters most to them. The partnership will reflect on questions that have been raised to them by children and young people in line with the six priorities.
