The Regional Partnership Board Children’s Sub-Group looks specifically at issues affecting children, young people and their families.
For the latest updates please see our blog.
The board have taken an in-depth look at the following topics using a Community of Enquiry approach.
The Right Door: bringing services together to meet children’s needs
The RPB Children’s Sub-Group have written a strategy in response to the No Wrong Door report written by the Children’s Commissioner for Wales.
The Right Door means that wherever you go to find support – at school, a community, service, social service, or health service, you’ll get help.
Emotional health, wellbeing and resilience framework
As part of the Regional Integrated Children’s Services Board, an Emotional Health and Wellbeing Resilience Framework has been created. It has been developed to be very much centred around the ‘what’ we can do to support children and young people, leaving the ‘how’ we can achieve it up to the relevant individual, trusted adult or support services.
StayWise brings together the collective educational resources of the emergency services and key safety focused organisations. We have done this to support teachers and community safety practitioners in delivering essential safety messages.
Regional Integration Fund
The Children’s Sub-Group oversees the projects relating to children and young people, which are part of the model of care to support families to stay together safely and therapeutic support for care experienced children.
The support ranges from local services that step in early and stop issues getting worse and different organisations and services working together to provide support, right the way through to specialist and very specialist service that support children at risk of harm or in crisis. There’s more information about our approach in The Right Door strategy.
Projects include the Local Integrated Family Team (LIFT) in Conwy and Denbighshire, a multi-agency team made up of staff from Conwy, Denbighshire and Betsi Cadwaladr University Hospital Trust. LIFT provides early intervention specialist help for families with managing children and young people’s (up to 18 years old) challenging behaviour at home.
It also includes intensive support teams for children with complex needs, such as The Multisystemic Therapy service in Flintshire and Wrexham, The Bwthyn Y Ddol service in Conwy and Denbighshire and the Gwynedd and Mon Transformation Team
