We are proud to introduce the new Single Strategic Plan which sets out our vision and priorities for children and
young people in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
The Children's Act 2004 created a duty on all local authority areas to produce a single plan for local services for children and young people.
The Plan is part of a major change already underway in how we deliver services and create opportunities for
children, young people and families who live in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Our Children & Young People's Strategic Plan has been developed at our Children's Services Planning Days, which have brought together key leaders from
the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, NHS, Connexions, voluntary sector, police and schools.

At our Children's Services Planning Day it was impressive to have such an active input
from children and young people.The planwas approved by the Children's Trust's Every Child Matters Steering Group Partners at our meeting.
We have been impressed with the widespread and active involvement in
developing the plan from all agencies, front line professionals attending locality
workshops and, most importantly, of children and young people.
Our Plan sets out an integrated strategy
to improve how, as partners, we intend
to prioritise, co-ordinate and focus
everyone's contribution on enabling
children and young people to realise
their full potential.
It takes into account
the diversity of the East Riding,
recognising the variety of local needs and
the work of the six Local Children &
Young People's Coordination Groups.
At the Victoria Climbie enquiry, Lord
Laming said "The future lies with those
managers who can demonstrate the
capacity to work effectively across
It is our responsibility as the Director
and Lead Member for Children, Family
and Adult Services for the East Riding of
Yorkshire to ensure our vision becomes
a reality through effective partnerships to
deliver the Every Child Matters
outcomes for children and young people.
We would welcome feedback on this plan.
