Keeping children and young people safe and giving them a great start in life

Keeping children and young people safe and giving them a great start in life

You may be aware that a new 5 year plan has recently been approved by the council and its key partners, which aims to give Herefordshire’s children and young people a great start in life and to grow up healthy, happy and safe. Further detail is available on the News section of the Council website.

The partnership is led by Herefordshire Council, chaired by Cllr Felicity Norman, and includes NHS Herefordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), West Mercia Police and other agencies that work closely with children, young people and their families.

The plan has been put together by the Children and Young People’s Partnership, with the help of children and young people from across the county, who told the partnership what was important to them, which included being part of the community, being healthy, being safe and being amazing!

The plan and a short summary video is available here.

As part of the work to launch the new plan, the Partnership is holding a Showcase event on 7 October at 3pm-6pm at the Shire Hall in Hereford to celebrate the support that is available locally and the difference that it makes for children, young people and families. Anyone can come along to learn more about what is happening in Herefordshire, it will be a fantastic networking opportunity for anyone involved in supporting children, young people and families.

Your work is an important part of how Herefordshire supports its children, young people and families, which makes you an important part of the Partnership, so it would be great to see you there! You can book tickets here, just click on the green register button.
