Bristol’s Strategy for Children, Young People and Families 2016-2020

Closed 3 Aug 2016

Opened 22 Jun 2016

Results expected 15 Sep 2016

Feedback expected 15 Nov 2016


A citywide strategy for children, young people and families is being developed by a cross sector reference group. It will include a clear shared vision for Bristol, and priorities for 2016-2020. An annual action plan will set out how these will be achieved.


The strategy will connect education, safeguarding, health and early intervention and will form an agreement across the Children and Families Partnership. It will provide the strategic context to drive future commissioning and show how partners will work together to improve children’s wellbeing.

Why we are consulting

This is not a refresh of an existing strategy or plan but will build on, pull together and signpost to a number of existing strategic documents from across the partnership. It will set out a shared vision and the focus of our joint work for the next four years.

We would like your views at this early stage of development. We want you to tell us what you think of the following so that we can further refine them and use them as the basis for the strategy:

  • A draft vision
  • A proposed common outcome framework
  • A draft set of priorities

What happens next

At the end of the consultation, the draft vision, outcomes and priorities will be amended based on the feedback and used as the basis for the strategy.


The Children and Families Partnership Board will agree the final strategy.
