Young people from RCT designed a young people’s version of the Social Services and Well-being engagement document, so that other children and young people can get involved.
Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council (MTCBC), Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council (RCTCBC) and the Cwm Taf University Health Board (Cwm Taf UHB) have been working together to produce the document, designed to support children, young people and families.
Its three key aims are to provide:
- The ‘right universal services at the right time’ to promote wellbeing, achievement and independent
- Focus on early help for those with emerging difficulties
- Targeted intensive support for those most in need of it
The ‘Cwm Taf Shared Regional Strategy for Supporting Children, Young People and Families’ sets out how the three organisations, along with partner organisations, will work together to meet the requirements of the Welsh Government’s Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 and Well-being and Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 by pooling resources to ensure high quality, accessible and integrated services that will help communities quickly and effectively.
Below are the briefing papers for children and young people to raise awareness about this work and also to invite them, their parents, families and professionals to look at the strategy at http://www.cwmtafhub.co.uk/KMS/dmart.aspx?noip=1&strTab=PublicDMart&PageType=item&DMartId=105369 and complete the online questionnaire.
If people want to have a hard copy of the strategy they can contact Helen Marshall on 01443 668853
The deadline for completing the questionnaire is March 30th 2018
