This new, innovative work, funded by The Robertson Trust, will support three Community Planning Partnerships to improve the wellbeing of children and families on the edges of the statutory care system.
Understanding and addressing the needs of children and families on the edge of care is critical to the success of Getting it Right for Every Child.
This project will work alongside partners, taking bold steps in the redesign of local services and making changes so that children and families get the right support, at the right time and in the right way.
It’s only by improving these early intervention models and systems that we can reduce the potential for escalation of problems later on in children’s lives.
We’re now inviting expressions of interest to work with us and the Robertson Trust for the next 6 months to scope out and develop a new, innovative programme.
The Robertson Trust has funded phase 1 of this programme. This phase will involve up to three CPP areas working with us to:
The outcome of the scoping work will form the basis of a funding proposal to support later phases of the programme, which we anticipate will run for three to five years:
We’re keen to share and exchange the learning from this work. If you’re unable to take part, then our edge of care community of practice is for you. You'll be able to dip in and out to see how the project is progressing and what we’re learning along the way. You can also chip in with your own views and experiences too.
We're setting the community up right now, so watch this space.
