Our bright futures


Looking Ahead 2023 - 2024

The Angus Community Plan 2017-30 was developed in partnership through the Community Planning Partnership (CPP) in September 2016.  As part of our statutory duty, the CPP must keep under review whether it is making progress in improving the achievement of each local outcome.  It was agreed a review of the current 2017-30 plan was needed given the changing environment we have faced over the last two years.  Throughout this reporting period work started on redeveloping the plan however partners all agreed that keeping ‘Eradicating Child Poverty’ was essential.

This work will be underpinned by the Promise and led by local people through our service design work which has already generated a lot of local interest.

For the 2023 – 2024 report the Best Start, Bright Futures Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan 2022-2026 will form the headline areas of work: -

Part A Providing opportunities and integrated support parents need to enter, sustain and progress in work

  • strengthened employment offer to parents
  • connectivity and childcare
  • transforming our economy

Part B Maximising the support available for families to live dignified lives and meet their basic needs

  • a transformational approach to people and place
  • social security
  • income maximisation
  • warm affordable homes

Part C Supporting the next generation to thrive

  • best start to life
  • supporting children to learn and grow
  • post school transitions

Successfully tackling child poverty requires our approach to evolve, to focus on outcomes rather than inputs, and to deliver evidence-informed wide-ranging action across Angus, which works together to wraparound and support families. This in turn will help to deliver the Angus vision to make the area a great place to live, work and visit.
