News Give your views Children and Young People’s Strategy Do you work with children and young people? Southampton City Council want to hear your ideas about how the council and its partners can work with and support children and young people to get a good start in life and be safe, healthy and happy. They are consulting on a draft Children and Young People’s Strategy that will shape their work and the things they focus on over the next few years – from early years education and initiatives that encourage good mental and physical health, right the way through to ensuring that young people leaving education have the best possible chances for their future. They want your help to make sure they’ve got this right and are focusing on the things that make a difference. Find out more about their draft strategy and tell them your views by visiting their consultation page. They are also particularly keen to hear from children and young people, so do please pass this to anyone who may want to share their views. The consultation closes on Sunday 12 December 2021.
