Manchester Children & Young People’s Plan

All parts of the city have a role in supporting our children and young people, not least families.

Manchester’s Children and Young People’s Plan sets out how the city intends to take forward the overall ambition and approach described in Our Manchester and Manchester’s Locality Plan in relation to children and young people.

This Plan sets out the priorities the city wants to achieve and how it will achieve them.  It reflects the wider Our Manchester approach being taken forward in the city which promotes a different way of working – one which at its core forges a deeper understanding of children, families and local communities, listening to what they care about and working together to improve quality of life.

This is a plan for all children and young people. Whilst some people may require more support than others, fundamentally the same aspirations apply to all.

It is also a partnership plan, jointly held by all agencies and organisations across the city that work with children and young people.

In terms of structure, the Plan sets the direction for how the city and its partners will deliver on this vision, focused on four overall outcome priorities, four things we are passionate about, four principles, and five behaviours for how we work.

The CYP Plan is supported by the ‘Our City Our Say’ Strategy which aims to strengthen the voice and influence of Manchester’s children and young people.
