Children and Young Peoples Plan (CYPP)
Under the Children Act 2004, local authorities are required to have in place local cooperation arrangements which facilitate integrated working, planning and delivery, with a focus on improving outcomes. Local authorities may choose to call these arrangements a ‘children’s trust’ or by another name, Lincolnshire has chosen to refer to this as ‘Children’s Trust Arrangements’ (CTA). The CTA reflect the integrated and outcome focussed way of working.
Working through Lincolnshire’s Children’s Trust Arrangements, The Children & Young Peoples Strategic Partnership (CYPSP) are required to address the type and level of need and ensure appropriate action is included in the Children and Young Peoples Plan (CYPP)
The Children and Young Peoples Strategic Partnership (CYPSP) are a statuary board with a responsibility for producing the Children and Young Peoples Plan (CYPP) for Lincolnshire. The CYPP is informed by stakeholder consultation including children, young people and their families. The CYPP sets out how the Brilliant Lincolnshire principles will be delivered through services that genuinely address the needs and interest of the local community.
