Our children and young people should be getting the best - not just getting by.
Helping children and young people to fulfil their potential is a key ambition of all councils, but services that can support them to do so are under increasing pressure.

Local leadership and accountability: for children and young people's mental health and wellbeing services
We want all our children to have bright futures. Key to that is ensuring that they have the emotional resilience and tools to make good choices, overcome challenges and move confidently towards where they want to be in adulthood. The current system cannot deliver that – so how can we ensure that it does?
