Multi-Agency Senior Management Board

A locally based multi-agency service which provides early intervention and prevention of difficulties for those who have additional needs is a key priority for the CYPP. In order to achive this senior officers with a responsibility for operational delivery of key services must work effectively  together to meet the needs of children, young people and their families and extend productivity within their area. 

The CYPP has set out a clear geographical framework within which services can be either commissioned or reconfigured to form fully integrated local delivery models; creating real or virtual teams for a specified population base or community. These include the provision of services on a county, area or a shire-wide basis.
