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.

Out For Our Children
Website: http://www.outforourchildren.co.uk/
We are a group of London lesbian parents producing books and resources that reflect our children’s lives and family experiences. A child needs love, support and acceptance for who they are and where they come from: we believe that inclusive books and other materials are an essential part of that support. OFOC Out For Our Children was originally founded in February 2004 by lesbian mothers with very young children to write guidelines as an aid for nurseries ill-prepared to welcome babies and toddlers with lesbian parents. Out for our Children has received financial assistance from the National Lottery Awards for All, the Local Network Fund (Every Child Matters), Haringey Community Chest and the Scarman Trust. These grants have enabled us to run a creche so the group can meet, produce resources and learning materials, run workshops on illustration and writing for children and to run a weekend ‘futures’ workshop.
