Change programme management
Improved outcomes for all children and young people strongly depend on the action taken in 150 local change programmes. This will be driven by an analysis of local priorities and secured through more integrated frontline delivery, processes, strategy and governance. However, it is recognised that local change programmes will be stronger if they are set within a supportive national framework.
A number of tools have been developed as part of the government's commitment to support these change programmes and to promote learning across local areas. Click on the links to access these resources:
