Children and Young People's Plan

The Children and Young People’s Plan (CYPP) is our plan to improve outcomes for Wirral’s children and young people and their families. It is an ‘over arching plan’, as underpinning it are strategic action plans delivered by partners in Wirral. It sets out our agreed shared priorities to deliver our vision:

“To enable Wirral’s children, young people and families to access services quickly in order to be secure, healthy, have fun and achieve their full potential”

The CYPP is for all children and young people and includes everything from universal services to targeted work with children, young people and families who have particular needs.

Key outcomes

Four key transformational outcomes have been identified to help drive and focus the work of all partners; these are:

  • Children are ready for school;
  • Young people are ready for work and adulthood;
  • Young people have their needs met as early as possible;
  • Young people feel safe and are safe.

These four areas will be delivered by the identified plan priorities and activities outlined in the CYPP.
