Children and Young People's Plan 2017-2020

Our ambition is to be the most child friendly borough in the country

Responsibility for the safety, health, happiness and achievement of children and young people in Doncaster rests primarily with their families and carers, who are supported by Doncaster Council, Doncaster Schools, Doncaster Children's Services Trust, St Leger Homes, South Yorkshire Police and the NHS. The Children and Young People's Plan sets out a series of mutually agreed partnership priorities to ensure that those agencies with a responsibility for children and young people work and plan together, and take collective responsibility for improving children's outcomes. The Plan sets out the overall ambition for children and young people, how this translates into action, and how we measure the impact we are having. It sets out who is doing what and the priorities for the next three years and acts as the overarching document that directs strategic commissioning across the partnership.

Children and Young People's Impact Report (2018)

When launching the Plan we committed to evaluating its impact on an annual basis to ensure progress was being made in realising our shared ambition of becoming the most child friendly borough in the country.

A year into the delivery of our Children and Young People’s Plan, children and young people were central in examining the impact our improving service delivery is having on the lives of families across Doncaster. In addition a range of partners were consulted and our performance data analysed.

Children and Young People's Impact Report (2019)

We are now two years into our delivery against the priorities within that plan and are able to demonstrate some real positive changes that have been made and the impact those have had on the outcomes and experiences of our children and young people.

Last year’s report was set out to guide the direction of work in each of the themes after a dynamic year in which the beginnings of the plan were being implemented. It was felt that this was not required this time around as the plan has been running long enough that initiatives and priorities are very much embedded and delivering results to our children and young people. As such, this year’s report has been set out in a different way.

The report will include assessments of each theme individually. Each of the four themes will have a section of infographics that set out some important improvements that have been delivered in the past year.

This will be followed up by a case study that demonstrates how these improvements have led to improvements in young people’s experiences of services. Finally, there will be a short assessment of each theme outlining some high level successes and areas of focus for each theme.
