Starting Well

WE WANT EVERY CHILD IN CARDIFF AND VALE TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO THRIVE. OUR WORK FOCUSES ON CHILDREN IN VULNERABLE SITUATIONS AND THE SERVICES THAT SUPPORT THEM. IT COVERS TWO KEY AREAS:

  • Emotional health and wellbeing
  • Children with complex needs and disabilities

We look at ways that services can work together to support children and ensure their work can continue in times of crisis. We have seen that when the health, care, education and third sector work together they can deliver a package that best meets the needs of the child and can help stop a challenging situation from getting worse.

Our priorities are:

Implementing the whole school approach where everyone has a part to play in supporting children and young people’s health and wellbeing

Creating a regional framework that sets out a standard for delivering services that can be tailored and used locally

Making sure there is a joined-up approach to mental health and emotional wellbeing

Creating regional resources for children and young people with complex needs

Improving support for children and young people with additional learning needs

PARTNERS WILL WORK TOGETHER TO TACKLE SHARED PRIORITIES TO IMPROVE THE HEALTH AND WELLBEING OF CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE, FOR INSTANCE AROUND MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALTH.

We know how hard it can be to find help when people need it the most. We want to make sure there is community support to help people stay as healthy as possible so they can carry on doing the things that matter most to them.

LIVING WELL

As a Partnership we have worked together with people with a learning disability, their families, carers and the third and independent sector to produce a clear direction for the planning and delivery of adult learning disability services across the region over the next five years.
