What is a Children’s Services Plan?
The Council want to make Stirling the best place to grow-up. So, every three years they produce a plan called the Children’s Services plan. This describes the things they want to do over the next three years to make things better.
We now would like your ideas of how we can take these ideas forward.
In the last plan, children, young people, parents carers and professionals said:
Children, young people, parents and carers have a vision of a Stirling that is safe, inclusive and nurturing and where all children and young people are able to thrive.
Services have a vision of a Stirling where every child grows up feeling loved, safe, and respected, so that they can realise their full potential.
From the results of the previous plan and the early stages of producing the new plan with children, young people and adults, the Council have developed goals to work towards during the three years of the plan.
They need your help to think about whether these are the right goals and what we need to do to achieve them.
Please complete the following google form to let us know what you think about the plan’s vision and those priorities that are important to you.
You can do this by filling in the following questionnaire:

- Children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing
- Supporting everyone in your family to have the best opportunities
- Tackling child poverty
- Working better together
They have also asked people to look at how we can improve life for:
- children and young people with care experience
- children and young people with disabilities
