Children's Services Plan

Children’s Services Plan 2017–2020
Getting it Right for Children and Young People in Stirling

Community Planning partners in Stirling want Stirling to be a nurturing, respectful and ambitious place for all children and young people, their families and communities. 

A new Children’s Services Plan for Stirling has been agreed and is for all of Stirling’s children and young people (up to the age of 18 years and care leavers up to the age of 25) and their families, and all staff working in agencies in the Stirling area who provide:

  • services directly to children, young people and families, or;
  • related services that could have a significant effect on the wellbeing of children and young people.

The GIRFEC approach runs through all the work that community planning partners do with children, young people and their families in Stirling. The national Wellbeing indicators provide a framework for this new Children’s Services Plan.

Our wellbeing outcomes set out what we want to achieve for children and young people in Stirling. Agencies and services will work with children, young people and their families to achieve these outcomes.

The Stirling Strategic Planning Group for Children will be responsible for delivery of outcomes and improvement priorities in the Children’s Services Plan.

The group is chaired by the Chief Social Work Officer. The General Manager, NHS Forth Valley, Community Services Directorate and the Chief Education Officer will act as vice chairs. Membership of the Strategic Group includes:

  • Schools, Learning and Education, Stirling Council
  • Children and Families, Stirling Council
  • Housing, Augmented Care and Support, Stirling Council
  • NHS Forth Valley, Community Services Directorate
  • NHS Forth Valley, Public Health
