Amie Swithenbank, Head of Children & Young People Services and Matthew Reading from Norfolk County Council discuss Flourish and how important this initiative is to the children and young people of Norfolk and Waveney.
Launched last year, Flourish is a Children and Young Peoples Partnership Strategy with the aim of enabling all children and young people in Norfolk to thrive. It has been developed for children and young people by children and young people and has been inspired by the things young people have told us are most important to them.
NCH&C has developed a Flourish Pledge, formulated in consultation with Norfolk County Council and using feedback from NCH&C’s Children’s Services team leaders. The quality improvement agenda and operational priorities for Children’s Services have also informed the pledge. We will be required to demonstrate progress against our pledge in the coming year.
