The Children’s Partnership is establishing a series of oversight groups. Each oversight group will have responsibility for a particular Strategic Outcome within the Edinburgh Children’s Partnership’s Integrated Plan for Children and Young People 2012-15.
The Strategic Outcomes are:
- SO1 – Our children have the best start in life, are able to make and sustain relationships and are ready to succeed
- SO2 – Our children and young people are successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens making a positive contribution to their communities
- SO3 – Our children and young people in need, or with a disability, have improved life chances
- SO4 – Our children and young people are physically and emotionally healthy
- SO5 – Our children and young people are safe from harm and fear of harm, and do not harm others within their communities
- SO6 – Our children’s and young people’s outcomes are not undermined by poverty and inequality
