Young People's Partnership
What is the Pembrokeshire Children and Young People's Partnership?
Pembrokeshire Children and Young People's Partnership (CYPP) brings together services working for children and young people in order for them to work out how they can make life in Pembrokeshire better for all children and young people aged 0 to 25. It provides a voice for these services and takes a lead in driving forward partnership working.
The Partnership works together to make sure that all children and young people in Pembrokeshire achieve the best outcomes for them, and that services carry on improving. The Partnership also makes sure that children, young people and their families are included in the planning, development and review of everything that they do.
In order to do this effectively a Children and Young People's Plan has been put in place. The main focus of the plan is to deliver a range of services and provide targeted and specialist services for those that need it.
In setting out the plan, the Partnership has used the Welsh Assembly Government's (WAG) Seven Core Aims. These are that all children and young people:
- Have a flying start in life
- Have a comprehensive range of education and learning opportunities
- Enjoy the best possible health and are free from abuse, victimisation and exploitation
- Have access to play, leisure, sporting and cultural activities
- Are listened to, treated with respect, and have their race and cultural identity recognised
- Have a safe home and community, which supports physical and emotional well-being
- Are not disadvantaged by poverty
The Core Aims came about from the Assembly's commitment to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The Convention set out how the Assembly should act in all dealings with children and young people. This created the framework for local partnership planning.
