Our vision for children and young people in Poole

Children and young people are the future for Poole.

They want:

  • to be listened to, supported and respected, so they and their community, school and town can be proud of each other
  • to take responsibility and improve the public image of young people

They tell us they need:

  • to be safe, with someone they trust to go to if they have concerns
  • good information on being healthy, and where to go for advice and activities
  • to enjoy learning and feel they are supported in achieving their ambitions
  • to have good friends and a variety of challenging, enjoyable and accessible activities to choose from
  • to be able to get a good job with training and take the first steps towards getting their own home

To achieve this, agencies in Poole are working together to change and improve the way services are provided for children, young people and families:

  • the child or young person will be at the centre of everything we do
  • we will have a single, clear and easily understandable system of support
  • we will work in true partnership with parents and children
  • all agencies and providers will work together in partnership and have a common purpose and common commitment to quality
  • we will involve neighbourhoods and the community in the programmes to achieve the 5 outcomes for children and young people
