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.
