Integrated Outcomes Based Planning to Improve Children's Lives in Northern Ireland: Event 3 - Contributing Positively to Community and Society
Several dozen delegates from government, policy, integrated planning and academia recently attended the third in a series of six training seminars based on the six high level outcomes of the Ten Year Strategy for Children and Young People in Northern Ireland (2006-2016). The event was held in The Canada Room/Council Chamber at Queen’s on the morning of 18 October 2012.
This third seminar was entitled ‘Contributing Positively to Community and Society’, with speakers from a variety of statutory, community and voluntary bodies, including Youth Justice Agency, Participation Network, Department of Justice, NIACRO, Extern, Action for Children, as well as the Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership (CYPSP) and Queen’s.
The training programme was developed in response to feedback from last year’s conference on ‘Improving Children’s Lives: Outcomes, Partnership and Planning’ which indicated the need for greater focus on outcomes based planning in the context of the six high level outcomes of the Ten Year Strategy.
These seminars also complement and support the work already being undertaken by the CYPSP, through the Northern Ireland Children and Young People’s Plan, whose central role is taking forward integrated planning and commissioning to improve the lives of all children and young people in Northern Ireland.
The event was co-hosted by the Improving Children’s Lives initiative (ICL); Children in Northern Ireland (CiNI); the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB); the Public Health Agency (PHA); the Office of First and Deputy First Minister and the Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership.
The video presentations from this event are now available to view here.
