Annual Event Report 2022

The Children and Young People’s Trust Annual event took place on 3rd May 2022. 168 adults and young people were able to join us from a variety of sectors and youth voice groups. This year’s event focused on the refresh of the Children and Young People’s Plan.

Children and Young People's Plan

This year, the Children and Young People’s Plan (CYP Plan) is being refreshed. The aim of the CYP Plan is to improve the outcomes of:

  • children and young people
  • particularly those who are vulnerable to poor outcomes

The refreshed plan covers five key priorities:

  • Best start for life
  • Safeguarding
  • Education
  • Physical Health
  • Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing

Following a presentation, the participants discussed each priority.
