Children and Young People's Plan (CYPP)

The Plan sets out the way in which the States intends to meet the requirements of the Children's Law 2008.

It is tailored to Guernsey and Alderney's needs and also compliant with the European Convention on Human Rights. The law says that the States has "a duty to provide services to any child in need" and the CYPP sets out how that's to be achieved.

A new Plan 2016

This is the second CYPP to be produced and it reflects the views of professionals, parents, children and young people gained through widespread consultation and debate, as well as through learning what worked in the previous plan. The Plan was debated and approved by the States in February 2016.

While prioritising 'children in need' the CYPP is aimed at ensuring that Guernsey and Alderney are the best places possible for children and young people to grow up.

Although the Health and Social Services Department had responsibility for drafting the CYPP, a multi-agency approach has been taken to its development and it is acknowledged that it can only work if action is joined-up across the States and with the help of the voluntary sector.

It also sits within the framework of public service reform. The focus is on transformation and partnership, adding value through effective joint working and making the welfare of the child the paramount consideration. It emphasises provision of integrated help and support at the earliest possible point for children and their families to prevent problems from worsening and seriously affecting the life chances of those children in the future.

A living document

The new Plan is a six-year document which needs to be regularly reviewed and revised; it is intended to be a 'living document' that is subject to continuous engagement with children and young people and their families, and an annual review and consultation process.

It has been a core principle of all of the work on the Plan that the voices of children and young people are heard in shaping the services provided to them and this remains one of the key commitments in the Plan and a key theme running through everything that we do.
