Members received the Final Evaluation Report and recommendations, together with a comprehensive presentation relating to the, four year, Fairer Start pilot programme.

Key outcomes for the pilot related to improving school readiness for children at age 5 in terms of;

- Social, emotional and cognitive development
- Speech and Language Development
- Maternal and Child Nutrition

Discussion:

- It was suggested that the presentation be provided to elected members.
- It was noted that the workforce development programme was available to anyone working across the 0 -19 system. The programme included six modules and was particularly aimed at middle managers and developing the model in a facilitated way. It would be important for senior managers to be sighted on any developments.
- Members noted that it had been difficult to collect hard data relating to the original key outcomes of the pilot and it was suggested that benefits may not be known for several more years.
- Engagement with difficult to reach

Members received presentations and completed JSNA templates relating to the following topics:

- Environment
- Obesity

Environment discussion:

-Members noted that identified Environment priorities, coming from the JSNA process, related to:
- continuing to improve air quality
- improve the urban environment
- develop and enhance the green
infrastructure and increase public use of the
natural environment.
- keep people warm.

- warm homes healthy people supported families with children not just older residents and there were links to Early Help services.

- it was agreed that it would be important to try and understand what people were doing with additional disposable income, created through changes to energy tariffs. It was suggested that people were spending some of the money on additional heating, which would have health benefits.

Obesity discussion:

Members noted that identified Obesity priorities, coming from the JSNA process, related to:
- system changes around behaviours, relating
to food and physical activity.
- supporting families and preventing obesity
in children.
- the link between deprivation and obesity.

- Members agreed that a key part of the work around obesity would be to change social norms, within the community, and help people understand that what constituted being overweight and that it was seriously unhealthy.

- Improving the emotional health of children and young people would be a factor in improving levels of obesity, so the work in schools would be very important.

- the Partnership recognized the role the government could have in terms of legislating around advertising of certain foods and sugar reduction etc.

Members considered the Partnership's Forward Plan.

During consideration of the Forward Plan, the Partnership was advised that as part of the Mental Health Transformation of Children and Young People's emotional health and wellbeing, the government had advised that they would be looking for expressions of interest to take part in the development and subsequent testing of different models of delivery to support emotional health and wellbeing in and around the school setting. A multiagency task and finish group had been formed to explore the local need, gaps and potential model to be tested with a view to making a bid.
