Our Children and Young People's Partnership
Wandsworth's Children and Young People's Partnership (WCYPP) is a multi agency forum of senior representatives which originally came into effect in January 2008 as the Children's Trust. The Partnership is responsible for producing the Wandsworth Children and Young People's Plan and for monitoring progress against the priorities in the plan.
As well as championing the interests of children and young people in Wandsworth, the WCYPP seeks to ensure the delivery of high quality services. It does this through a common approach to enable all the partners working with children and young people to:
Improve outcomes for children, young people and their families.
Plan and deliver programmes together so as many children and young people as possible can access services when they need them.
Assess needs together and then from that offer a package of support that meets the particular needs of a child, young person and their family.
The WCYPP includes the Council, Health, Police, Probation, Youth Offending Team, Schools, Further Education and Sixth Form Colleges as well as the Voluntary and Community Sector and General Practitioners.
There are seven Overview Groups which feed into the Partnership. These groups cover:
- Children Looked After
- Young People
- Special Needs and Disabilities
