Children & Families

Working with children and families is a strand of the city’s Community Learning & Development Plan 2018-2021.

The priority for this area of work is to develop early intervention approaches to combat poverty, address inequalities and improve attainment and achievement.


Increased family learning opportunities are having a positive impact on attainment and parents support of their children’s schooling.

Families affected by welfare reform, in communities with the highest levels of poverty are able to cope better as a result of engagement with family learning.

Work with wider partners is ensuring that CLD is seen as an effective early intervention approach.
