Most Recent Strategies
This strategy will coordinate efforts in Wandsworth to reduce the burden of death, disability and distress caused by obesity in Wandsworth.
It aims to halt the rise in the prevalence of obesity in adults and children by 2015 and then maintain this level through a focus on both prevention and management throughout the life of the strategy.
This is an assessment of childcare provision in Wandsworth which maps the current supply of childcare in Wandsworth against what parents tell us they use.
This enables us to:
- Find out if we have the correct type and supply of childcare
- See what the barriers are to take up and the gaps in the current provision
- Produce a forward action plan to enable partners to address those identified gaps.
This policy lays out the key principles for the delivery of all Wandsworth drug related services for children and young people and to offer a framework within which issues related to children and young people and drug and alcohol use in Wandsworth can be addressed. This is for the benefit of children and young people themselves, service providers, families and the wider community.
The policy is intended to be a practical, easily accessible resource and it also includes references to other useful resources. It should be made available to all staff and young people.
We recognise that we live in an environment of constant change. Now is the right time to review our achievements, recognise national and local developments, acknowledge the challenges to be faced and plainly state what we wish to achieve over the next 5 years.
"We respect and value Carers, they do an amazing job. They are the hidden heroes in many of our communities"
Carers make an enormous contribution to society, and are lifelines to the family, friends, or neighbours who depend upon them. In Wandsworth we believe that Carers should be valued, recognised for the fundamental work that they do, and supported both in their caring role and to have a life outside of caring.
Young Carers contribute to society just as adult Carers do. We want to ensure though that Young Carers have an appropriate balance between the caring roles that they undertake and their needs as a child being met.
This is why we have developed the second Wandsworth Strategy for Carers and Young Carers; a plan that identifies what help Carers and Young Carers need in order to achieve these aims, and how we can provide this help.
The Strategy has been developed by listening to Carers, Young Carers and feedback from professionals; working together to identify a set of quality markers, setting out how Wandsworth Council, NHS Wandsworth, Community Services Wandsworth, the voluntary sector, Job Centre Plus and other partners will provide and develop services and support to Carers and Young Carers over the next five years.
