Children and Young People's Improvement Board Structure

The Welsh Assembly Government expects local authorities to take the lead in driving forward partnership working that puts in place effective integrated services for children and young people.

The structure for the Board has evolved in line with the development of the Partnership Framework to Improve Outcomes for All Children and Young People 2015/17. The structure is underpinned by the seven core aims identified by the Welsh Assembly Government and adopted from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the work streams associated with developing the new strategic focus for early intervention and prevention. These groups make up the Joint Planning Structure and will provide professional advice to the Children and Young People’s Improvement Board.
