CYPHP has clear governance arrangements for directing, managing, and delivering its programme with clear lines of accountability. This programme is being delivered using standard project management techniques. In addition to this internal governance structure, the programme continues to build and identify strong links with established institutions and commissioners of health and children’s services to ensure it remains sustainable.

This programme has robust project governance systems in place which include:

  • Programme Board: senior representatives from all partnership organisations, providing strategic direction and leadership of the overall programme.
  • Partners Group: a strategic operational delivery group focusing on ownership within the Partnership, and working with the CYPHP programme team.

A number of advisory groups also provide valuable input and challenge to the programme's work: an external Expert Advisory Panel, a Parent & Carer Advisory Panel, and ongoing engagement work with local children and young people.
