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.
- 2005 - 2008 Children's Services Plan
- 2008 - 2010 Children & Young People's Integrated Services Plan
- 2011 - 2013 Children & Young People's Integrated Services Plan
You can download these plans from this page or you can request it in another format.
The plan sets out our own and local partner agencies' joint priorities and improvement objectives for all children, young people and their families in Clackmannanshire until 2013. It 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.
The 2013 plan was produced in partnership with NHS Forth Valley and a wide range of statutory and voluntary agencies including Central Scotland Police, the Authority Reporter, Clackmannanshire Third Sector Interface, carers, parents and importantly, children and young people.
"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.

Scottish Government's paper
The Scottish Government's 'Valuing Young People' paper has been designed to support partners deliver positive outcomes for all young people, while recognising that some need more help than others to realise their potential. It is founded on the principle of partnership: partnership with young people that offers them participation in their communities and local services; but also partnership across national and local government and the voluntary sector to provide the right kind of access to services that meets the diverse needs of young people.
