       Consultation on draft vision,
     principles and priority outcomes

         8 March to 7 June 2010
 CYPP 2011-14
 You may have previously heard us talking about a plan
  for 2010-13
 The Children’s Trust board have now decided to have
  an interim 2010-11 plan and a full new plan in 2011-14,
  so that:
   • The two-stage consultation process allows us to test out the
     draft priorities
   • There is more opportunity to fully engage partners and
     stakeholders in developing the plan
   • Full implications of new legislation can be taken into account,
     including the statutory guidance on CYPPs and new statutory
     requirements around child poverty
   • The new CYPP will reflect CSR 2011-14 spending priorities
