The minutes of the meeting of the Partnership held on 18 October 2017 were confirmed as a correct record.

28/17
The Partnership was provided with an update relating to the Domestic Abuse Strategy 2017 - 2022.

Members were introduced to Rachel Batey, who had recently been appointed to the role of Domestic Abuse Coordinator. Part of Rachel's role would be to work with partners to help deliver the strategy's Action Plans.

Members received a report that detailed some of the work that had been undertaken associated with developing the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

The Partnership was asked to provide some feedback to identify how JSNA topics would be prioritised for completion.

It was noted that a number of topics had already been completed or had been started. e.g SEN, LAC, CSE, Domestic Abuse.

Members noted that other topics, could, potentially, be added to the list, or topics could be widened. Topic titles could be changed to better reflect content

It was recognized that plans, strategies and commissioning attempted to deliver answers to multiple issues, many of which were interlinked It was suggested that the current structure of the JSNA did not reflect this complexity. There was concern that the current structure might not allow full consideration of all issues and could result in working in siloes. It was explained that there was flexibility within topics and links were constantly being made between topics. It was important to analyse all interlinked topics.

The Partnership noted that the emerging Children and Young People's Plan would cut across many topics.

Discussion touched on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and how such experiences could have a seriously negative effect on someone's whole life profile. Data in this area may also highlight resilience factors.

It was noted that some schools held data, across multiple factors, about their cohort of pupils. This enabled them to continuously consider and adapt their strategies. Any data the schools could share, may be helpful to work the Council and other agencies were involved in.

The council provide data to schools on children subject to early help, child in need, protection and looked after children. Only a handful of schools had responded to a request to confirm if this information was useful and should continue to be provided. The request would be resent.

The Group did not explicitly prioritise individual topics but it was agreed that there should be some priority given to topics relating to vulnerable children.
CHP
30/17
Members received a report that had previously been considered by the Health and Wellbeing Board relating to key issues and indicators for Health protection for 2016 - 17.
CHP
31/17
Members received a report that provided details of outcomes from the Borough Wide Conversation held with young people of the Borough in July 2017.

It was noted that the outcomes of the conversation had been extremely helpful and details of how services would respond to the information, they'd received, was provided. In addition the outcomes coming from the event would be considered by the Stockton Youth Assembly (SYA), and this would help in the development of necessary actions.

The information received would also feed into the Children and Young People's Plan.

The Police were looking at opportunities to engage with young people and it was suggested that they attend a meeting of the SYA.
CHP
32/17
Members agreed a number of amendments to the Forward Plan.
