The Aberdeen Children’s Services Board represents all the key agencies that deliver services for children and young people in Aberdeen City. Its purpose is to ensure the effective delivery of services for children and young people at all stages of their development and growth. Our lead Partners include: Aberdeen City Council, Police Scotland, Aberdeen Health and Social Care Partnership, NHS Grampian and the Third (Voluntary) Sector. We are also supported by numerous other local and national partner organisations. We are committed to working collaboratively to improve services and outcomes for children, young people and their families in Aberdeen.
Aberdeen City’s Children’s Services Plan 2023-2026 sets out our vision and priorities for children and young people’s services over the next three years. It outlines how the services working across the Local Authority’s catchment will come together to share resources and services over the next three years to improve outcomes for our children and young people. It also forms the basis of three-year cycle of work to achieve the ten-year vision laid out in our Community Planning Aberdeen Local Outcome Improvement Plan (LOIP) 2016-2026, under the Prosperous People: Children & Young People theme. The LOIP is a detailed outline of how the Community Planning Partnership will make Aberdeen a place where all people can prosper.
Getting It Right for Every Child, which is the Scottish Government’s approach to help all children and young people grow, develop and reach their full potential, provides us all with a common approach to work together to deliver better outcomes for children and to measure success.
The Children’s Services Board oversees the delivery of the Children’s Services Plan 2023-2026 and the delivery of key processes to support multi-agency working.
