Improving outcomes for Bristol children, young people and families is the key driver for all our work. In order to do this, we must prioritise and focus on key issues. The Bristol Children and Young People’s Plan (CYPP) is the overarching strategic plan to improve outcomes for children, young people and families. The Children’s Services Scrutiny Commission receives quarterly reports on how well we are doing against key performance indicators.  It will also receive updates on our plans and strategies.  The agendas and minutes of these meetings are available on our Committee Minutes page. Our schools, colleges, child care providers and children’s social services are inspected regularly and reports of these inspections can be found on the Ofsted website. We have produced a needs assessment examining the causes and impacts of child poverty in the form of a blog.  You can access it and contribute to the debate. The site also contains a wider series of data, analysis and consultation on the lives of children, young people and families in Bristol.

We are committed to improving our performance in the top 100 Stonewall Employers index and this is one of the council’s key equalities objectives in our Single Equality Scheme 2010-13. In 2011 we came 75th out of 378 leading employers in Britain and we hope to improve this year on year, despite increasing competition. We also subscribe to the Stonewall Education champions programme. In 2011 we were given 8th place in recognition of targeted work supported by local schools. The council was awarded City of Sanctuary status in March 2011 by the City of Sanctuary National Network, an organisation that is made up of representatives from 10 cities. Our new status recognises that services to refugees here are among the best in Britain.

The city of Bristol, England, is a unitary authority, represented by four MPs representing seats wholly within the city boundaries. As well as these, Filton and Bradley Stoke covers the northern urban fringe in South Gloucestershire and the north eastern urban fringe is in the Kingswood constituency. The overall trend of both local and national representation became left of centre, favouring the Labour Party and Liberal Democrats during the latter 20th century, but there was a shift to the right in the 2010 general election (although this was not reflected in the local elections). The city has a tradition of local activism, with environmental issues and sustainable transport[1] being prominent issues in the city. The most recent City council elections were in May 2011. The next are expected in May 2013.  For information and up to date council meeting webcasts visit the Council and Democracy pages, at http://www.bristol.gov.uk/nav/council-and-democracy
