Scottish Government launches Realigning Children’s Services

The Scottish Government has written to community planning partnerships offering support for the development of joint strategic commissioning of children’s services.  The programme aims to shift expenditure on children’s services towards prevention and early intervention by improving evidence of need, linking services to need, and linking investment to outcomes.  CCPS will be working to ensure that third sector providers are directly involved in the programme as it develops.

Here is a link to a summary description of the programme: RCS – information sheet for CPPs   and a link to the Scottish Government website on the programme.
