Our mission, aim and priorities

Our mission and aim

The Partnership’s mission is that all children and young people in Devon should feel safe and be protected from harm.

To fulfil this mission, our aim is to make sure that children and families get the right support, in the right place at the right time.

This aim can only be delivered through successful multi-agency working. A central part of our work, then, will be prioritising collaboration and strengthening relationships across the Partnership. This is also where our priorities come in, as they give us the structure around which we shape our collaborative approach. 

Our priorities

Earlier this year, we agreed together to adopt the partnership priorities as developed by the Children’s Services Improvement Partnership Board. These are:

  • Improving the outcomes of pre-birth services and support services for infants.
  • Improving partnership working in compliance with Working Together.
  • Improve the response to adolescent need through the development of multi-agency contextual safeguarding approaches.
  • Improving the partnership response to domestic abuse to prevent harm to children.
