The Children and Young People's Partnership has set up five service delivery areas, known as Locality Teams, which provide a focus for developing more localised children and family services. Developing services locally will help ensure ease of access for families and will support different services – schools, health services and others – to work closer together to help individual families early and prevent difficulties turning into serious problems.
The locality areas, with their updated needs analyses for November 2013, are:
Each Locality area contains a network of primary schools, at least one secondary school and at least one children’s centre. These organisations work in partnership and share knowledge and resources, such as extended schools services, and are supported by a multi-agency team at local authority level.
