"The One Vision Partnership Plan aims to radically change the way services work together to improve the lives of children, young people and their families in Cornwall and the Isles and Scilly"
One Vision sets out the plan for a new integrated model for children’s services in Cornwall, providing one “front door” for families to access education, health and social care services.
By bringing together all of the people and services supporting children and young people, we believe that we can break down barriers that can prevent each and every child and young person from being safe, healthy and having equal chances in accessing all available opportunities to achieve brighter futures.
The decision to integrate services for children has come about after listening to what children, young people and families in Cornwall have said they want – a more efficient service where they can get the right help at the right time in one go. Our plan has been developed to:
Strengthen families and communities
Raise the aspiration and education achievement for all children and closing the outcomes gap for vulnerable children
Protect, promote and improve children’s physical, emotional and mental health
Help and protect children from the risk of harm
Increase the contribution and resilience of the community.
Our One Vision Partnership Plan has been drawn from extensive engagement with professionals, partners, children, young people, parents and carers. It has received enthusiastic support through the governance processes of partner agencies and was endorsed by the multi-agency Health and Wellbeing Board on 23 March 2017. Senior leaders involved in providing Children’s Services across Cornwall have joined together as signatories to this strategy to change the way education, health and social care services are provided in future in the County.
