A NEW plan for services for the children and young people of Gwynedd was launched yesterday at the National Eisteddfod.
Gwynedd Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership’s are behind the document which aims to help the county’s youngsters:
- To get the best start in life.
- To learn and gain skills
- To be healthy
- To have the opportunity to relax and enjoy themselves
- To have their voices heard
- To live in safe homes and communities, and
- To look forward to a good future
Priorities for the partnership include support for parents and families; education and learning opportunities; mental health and emotional well-being, and protecting those vulnerable to abuse and neglect.
Iwan Trefor Jones, Partnership chairman said, “Ensuring that every child and young person living in Gwynedd have access to the best opportunities in life is a priority to us.
“The plan is based on the findings of extensive research carried out by the partnership on the needs of children and young people in Gwynedd, as well as the hopes and ambitions of children themselves.”
There’s also a Charter outlining the rights and responsibilities of every under-25 year-old in the county. A week of events in November will be dedicated to young people in Gwynedd.
