A PLAN to improve children’s services on the Isle of Wight has been published and Islanders can have their say on it.
Almost 5,000 young people have already responded to surveys to help shape the Children and Young People’s Plan 2014 to 2017 (CYPP), created by the Isle of Wight Council, police, Community Action Isle of Wight and Isle of Wight NHS Trust.
The plan addresses issues including obesity, poverty and domestic abuse.
Dr John Rivers, chair of the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said: "Our children and young people are the future of this Island. We need the views of all sections of our society to ensure that our Island provides children and young people with the best possible start in life."
Consultation on the draft CYPP starts today (November 1) and runs until 5pm on November 29.
To view the document and take part in the consultation, residents should log on to the council's website at www.iwight.com.
Alternatively, paper copies are available by contacting Rachel Dominey via firstname.lastname@example.org.
