For the Executive to recommend that full Council approve and adopt the new Children & Young People’s Plan, 2018-2021.


That full Council approve and adopt the new Children & Young People’s Plan, 2018-2021.

Reasons for the decision:

      i.        The Council has a duty to promote cooperation between local partners. This plan articulates the way that partners will support this duty.


     ii.        The plan has been developed in partnership by Bracknell Forest’s Children & Young People’s Board. This Board has key representation from the council, including the Executive Member and the Director of Children’s Services along with colleagues from agencies including the police force, health service and the voluntary sector.


    iii.        It is important that partners have a clear, aligned focus for the work that we do to meet the needs of local children and families. This Plan provides that focus and is an opportunity to improve our collective impact.

Alternative options considered:

We discounted the option of not developing a new Plan, as this was not considered

to be in the best interests of local children and young people.
