The Children and Young People’s Plan for Redcar and Cleveland is the single, over-arching strategic plan which sets out how all organisations will work together to improve the lives of children and young people across the borough. A new plan was produced in 2011.
The plan shapes how the council, police, schools, voluntary and community sector, NHS, probation service and Local Safeguarding Children Board will deliver services to children and young people over a defined period of time in line with our new priorities.
The plan covers services which affect children and young people aged from 0-19, over 19s who have left care and young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities up to the age of 25. The plan is developed, resourced, implemented and monitored by Redcar and Cleveland Children and Young People’s Trust.

* At the July meeting of the Children and Young People’s Trust, some changes were agreed to the Trust’s structure and governance arrangement. From the July meeting, the Trust is now accountable to the Redcar and Cleveland Health and Well Being Board. As such, the Trust Board will be replaced by a smaller Children and Young People’s Trust Board Executive, which will consist of an independent chair and the chairs of the 4 priority groups. The Trust will also be the main accountable lead for Outcome 1 of the Health and Well Being Strategy “Children and Young People have the best start in life”, and hence will subsume the additional work streams (such as maternal health and breastfeeding), into Priority Group 2, which has a focus on early intervention”.
