Children and Young People's Plan
The Children and Young People's Plan (CYP Plan) is an important part of the reforms supported by the Children Act 2004. Local areas have to produce a single, overarching plan for all services affecting children and young people.
Children and young people are defined as all those up to the age of 19 years, except for certain young people such as care leavers (21 years), and those participating in youth support services (25 years).
The Welsh Assembly Government provides guidance (Shared Planning for Better Outcomes) to CYPPs to help them with the production of their plans.
The CYPP is committed to the aspirations for children and young people contained in 'Children and Young People: Rights to Action (2004)' and 'Extending Entitlement supporting young people in Wales (2002)'. The planning priorities and proposals contained in this Plan should be read across both the 7 Core Aims for all children and young people and the 10 Entitlements.
The Powys Children and Young People’s Plan is a 3 year strategic plan which will be reviewed annually.
