Health and Social Care Plans and Strategy
Highland Integrated Children's Service Plan 2021-2023
From the For Highland Children website http://www.forhighlandschildren.org/index.htm In Highland we are committed to improving services and outcomes for children and their families. To achieve this, we know that everyone involved with children and young people need to work together. Everyone working with children across Highland uses the Highland Practice Model. This means that every child has a Named Person. Children who have additional needs that require a plan involving more than one service have a Lead Professional.
Our partnership vision is for all Highland’s Children to have the best possible start in life and enjoy being young are loved, confident and resilient and can achieve their potential. This is reflected in the Highland Integrated Children's Service Plan 2021-2023.(forhighlandschildren.org)
