Building a safe, happy, healthy and successful future for children and young people
Children and young people matter in Manchester and it is vital that we invest in the next generation to build a successful, world class city that is full of opportunities. The Plan highlights how agencies and organisations will work together with children and young people to ensure that they can enjoy a safe, happy, healthy and successful future.
Our key priorities over the next 4 years will be for all children and young people to: – feel safe in their community and have trusted adults they can speak to – have an improved knowledge around e-safety – be able to access affordable, cultural, leisure, youth and sports opportunities – have their voices heard and be recognised for their contributions and achievements – be able to have quick and accessible access to emotional and mental health support – have better education around physical and mental health issues – be able to live in a society where environmental issues are intrinsic to decision making – attend an education setting that is judged to be good or better and has high-quality pastoral support – be able to develop skills for life and access high quality careers advice and support.
Celebrating Manchester’s children and young people with a whole-city approach to help them shape a future that’s safe, happy, healthy and successful. A year of action, together, to create more activities, opportunities, experiences and support for our children and young people.
