Key priority areas for the Lewisham Children and Young People's Strategic Partnership

Key priority areas for the Lewisham Children and Young People's Strategic Partnership

The Lewisham Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership has identified four key areas to improve outcomes for children and young people. This is to be taken forward through our Children and Young People’s Plan 2015-18.

These priority areas are: 

Build child and family resilience

  • In order to maximise outcomes, we want all our children and young people to be resilient, knowing when and where to go for help and support when faced with challenges and adversities as they arise.
  • We want our parents/ carers and young people’s workforce to be equipped to identify and respond to mental health emotional well-being needs amongst  children and young people, intervening early and preventing needs from escalating.

Be healthy and active

  • We want our children, young people and their families to be healthy and active, confident and able to make healthy choices and to understand how this can improve their development and wellbeing.
  • Through the delivery of our CYPP, we will improve and maintain the health and wellbeing of our children and young people, reducing health inequalities.

Raise achievement and attainment

  • We will promote the highest aspirations and ambition for all our children and young people across the partnership, particularly to close gaps and secure social mobility.
  • We want all of our children and young people to achieve highly, supported by the best education, employment and training opportunities.

Stay safe

  • We will work across the partnership to ensure that the right of every child to live in a safe and secure environment, free from abuse, neglect and harm is protected.
  • We will identify and protect children and young people at risk of harm and ensure that they feel safe.

Under each of these key outcome areas and informed by our needs analysis, we have identified our priorities - the outcomes we most need to have an impact on to achieve our vision for Lewisham children and young people.
