Integrated Children's Services Planning

"Children are our future"

Local authorities along with their partners have been required to produce Integrated Children's Plans since 2005.

The plan is intended to be a driver for change and links together relevant policies and focuses on the better integration and provision of services which have a positive impact on children and young people.

Our Vision

"That every child and young person has the best possible start in life and achieves their potential".

In order to achieve our vision, we will work to the following priorities:

  • Ensure that GIRFEC principles and processes are embedded in all partner organisations.
  • Improve targeted services for vulnerable children especially in the area of early intervention with an emphasis on pre-5s and those affected by parental substance misuse.
  • Developing skills within young people (aged 13-24) especially those most vulnerable.
  • Drive forward the integration of services across Clackmannanshire and Stirling to improve outcomes for service users.

Children's Services Planning

The Integrated Children's Services Plan feeds in to the Community Plan and Single Outcome Agreement (SOA) and links with other relevant strategies such as the Corporate Parenting Strategy.

Early Years Framework

Clackmannanshire Early Years Framework Implementation Plan was approved in December 2011.

The Early Years Framework sets out 10 elements of transitional change, to be realised over a 10 year time horizon, and covers the period from pre-birth to age 8.

  • Scottish Government
    • The Early Years Framework
      • This framework is about giving all our children the best start in life and the steps the Scottish Government, local partners and practitioners in early years services need to take to start us on that journey.
      • Progress so far
