Under the Children Act (2004) the Welsh Assembly Government requires each local authority in Wales to co-operate with partner agencies to develop a plan to improve outcomes for children, young people and their families.
The National Health Service Wales Act (2006) places a duty on each local authority and health board to prepare a Health, Social Care and Well-being Strategy for their area. Since both the plan and strategy will run concurrently for three years from April 2011 and together they focus on improving outcomes for all local citizens, the relevant statutory partnerships in Wrexham have agreed that a single plan enhances co-operation, reduces duplication and best meets the needs of the people of Wrexham. A range of key national and local documents have been used to inform the development and content of our joint plan to realise our joint outcomes.
This key strategic document has been developed through Wrexham’s Health, Social Care and Well-Being Partnership and the Children and Young People Framework Partnership, and demonstrates our commitment to both partnership working and public engagement. It contains our three year vision and the outcomes and priority areas that we wish to achieve by 2014 and further strengthens the work we undertook within our 2008-11 Plans. In the current financial climate we recognise the importance of ensuring that the highest priority is given to those with the greatest needs in order to achieve our outcomes. We will, continue to work in partnership to make the best use of our resources in order to achieve our vision and demonstrate the difference made to the well-being of the people of Wrexham.
The Health Social Care and Well-being Partnership and the Children and Young Peoples Framework Partnership are very grateful to all those people who took part in the consultation process for Our Joint Plan and the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment consultation that accompanied it, from 8th November 2010 to 30th January 2011. Over 650 people responded to the consultation either as individuals or representing organisations, at meetings, workshops, by email, by post and at the public consultation event held on 19th January 2011. All the responses were collated and tabled at meetings of the Joint Plan writing team concerning each of the nine outcome areas, during January and February. These have led to the modification of the Joint Plan document to reflect the feedback received. The final version of the Joint Plan was adopted by full Council and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and the Plan will be operational from 1st April.
