Clackmannanshire Council Online

Children's Services Plan

Children's Services Plan

Clackmannanshire Council has considered the guidance provided recently by the Scottish Government and has decided to defer finalising our new Children’s Services Plan 2020-23. For full details, please refer to our Children's Services Plan 2021-23 Statement page.

Our Children's Services 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

We want Clackmannanshire to be a great place for children and young people to grow up. We will do this by ensuring that they have the best possible opportunities and life chances. We want every child to experience a safe and happy childhood. We want to them to develop positive wellbeing and to access high quality learning and development opportunities, so that they can move forward confidently into adulthood.

We have identified four core priorities that underpin our plan. Progress in these areas will have a positive impact in other broader areas, helping us to take forward our vision for the children and young people of Clackmannanshire.

Our core priorities for children and young people living in Clackmannanshire are that they

  • are safe from harm,
  • have the best possible start in life,
  • grow up healthy, confident and resilient,
  • have skills for life, work and learning.

Children's Services Planning

The Children's Services Plan feeds in to the Community Plan and the Local Outcomes Improvement Plan and links with other relevant strategies such as the Corporate Parenting Strategy.
