Sufficiency Strategy 2018-2020

As corporate parents, securing placements and services for our children and young in care, care leavers and disabled children, when they are unable to return home, that meet their needs and helps them to achieve the best possible outcomes is really important. This strategy aims to celebrate what we have achieved so far. Whilst also outlining what we need to do in order to address gaps and continue to improve placements. This will help to ensure we meet demand now, into the future and services are the best they can be. We have listened to our children in care and care leavers and we want to know more of what they think about services that are for them going forward.

This Strategy will ensure we develop sufficient placements to meet the needs of our children and young people in care and disabled children in Devon. We will keep the engagement process for the strategy live throughout the year with young people, the workforce, providers and stakeholders. A formal refresh of the strategy will be published annually. A Market Development Plan has informed this strategy and this action plan will continue to be developed and implemented with the impact of this reported twice a year and informing the refreshed plan for 2020.
