Locality working

Plymouth Children and Young People’s Trust Plan 2008 – 2011 says this about locality working:

We will work together to …. develop a locality delivery structure to enable all targeted and some specialist services to be delivered locally.

Through locality working ensure that we maximise the potential of children’s centre, primary care centres and schools working closer together.

Plymouth is committed to ensuring that integrated information management systems provide a tool for staff to assist improved information sharing and locality service delivery.

Six localities have been identified and each will have its own needs profile based on the city wide needs assessment.

Over time the planning and commissioning of services will be undertaken within localities, informed by and reflecting their local needs.
