Children and Young People’s Service Plan 2020-2023

Argyll and Bute Community Planning Partnership is working to improve the lives and opportunities for young people

One key priority of our Single Outcome Agreement is that we want the rights and views of children and young people to influence and shape the development and delivery of services they use in Argyll and Bute.


This plan sets the direction and identifies the actions that all partners are committed to deliver in order to ensure that children and young people living in Argyll and Bute get the best possible start in life.  It sets out how we will work together to achieve the best for children, young people and families.

The Children and Young People’s Services Plan runs for three years and during this period the plan focuses on the key areas of ensuring that children and young people are:

  1. Safe – Protected from abuse, neglect or harm at home, at school and in the  community
  2. Healthy – Have the highest attainable standards of physical and mental health, access to suitable health care & support to make healthy and safe choices
