Angus joint child poverty local action plan

Monitoring and evaluation

To ensure our monitoring and reporting are streamlined with existing reporting routes it is planned to use the overarching philosophy outlined by the Scottish Government with regards to the Child Poverty Action reports:

To compliment this work the Angus Community Planning Partnership, under the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, must produce a Local Outcomes Improvement Plan (LOIP), describing their collaboratively agreed local priorities for improvement. In Angus the 3 priorities are:-

  • Reducing Child Poverty
  • Improving Mental Health and Wellbeing
  • Improving Accessibility and Connectivity

Within Angus Community Planning Partnership a routine of self-assessment, outcomes reports and options appraisals are currently used to measure performance and impact. This is done through the Local Authorities Performance reporting system Pentana. Following the publication of the Child Poverty Action Report these actions will be on the system and reported on throughout the year in line with the Plan  - Act - Review thinking.
