This animation was created with support from local young people to briefly explain the five year plan that has been developed to improve the health of children and young people in Islington.
The plan is known as the Islington Children and Young People’s Health Strategy 2015 – 2020 and has been written by Islington Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Islington Council. The vision of the strategy is to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people in Islington from conception to adulthood and to reduce health inequalities by:
- Promoting good health.
- Making safe, high quality, affordable and coordinated health services available at, or close to home in partnership with children, young people, their parents and carers.
- Supporting them to be in control of their own health where possible and to maximise their life chances as they grow up.
