Welcome to our plan!

Supporting wellbeing, strong families, caring communities in South Ayrshire

South Ayrshire’s Children and Young People’s Services Plan.

Our third Children and Young People’s Services Plan for South Ayrshire shares our joined vision, priorities and outcomes across the Community Planning Partnership.  Community planning partners are national and local public sector bodies who deliver services to families in South Ayrshire together with the wide-reaching Third Sector. All partners in South Ayrshire contribute greatly to the delivery and collaborative aims of this plan.

Our approach reflects a shared commitment to Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) at the highest level, supporting the continued provision of high quality services for the whole family that mitigate against the ongoing impact of poverty and inequality in our communities.  Each priority area within the Plan will be accompanied by a GIRFEC Action Plan specific to that priority to ensure equity for all.

This plan is informed by our most important partners, South Ayrshire’s children and young people themselves.   It builds on the progress of our previous plans, led by the foundations of The Promise and refreshed principles that underpin Getting it Right For Every Child to create a local environment that embraces GIRFEC practice for each individual child, young person and family.
