Bassetlaw ICP: Children & Young People’s Network

A network of services supporting the health and wellbeing of children and young people has been established, to build a collective understanding of the local offer, to communicate this to children, families and partners and to engage the voice of children and young people in the ICP.

The network has developed an inventory of service (can be accessed here, or to the right hand side of the page), and is using insights from engagement to shape the future of services.

The inventory has been shared with all Bassetlaw schools, GP practices and services relating to children and young people. The online version can easily be shared with our link:

If you would like to contribute to the network or inventory please get in touch by emailing us:

Services for Children and Young People Summit October 2018

The Health and Wellbeing Services for Children and Young People’s Summit event was designed to:

  • Respond to feedback from ACP partners about a lack of insight into the services available to support the health and wellbeing of children and young people in Bassetlaw;
  • Communicate a new ‘inventory’ of health and wellbeing services for children and young people, developed by Bassetlaw partners, between services, to primary care, and to children and young people and schools in the Retford area;
  • Pilot the marketplace approach to engagement of children and young people and partners in the development of health and wellbeing services in the area.
