Our refreshed 2017/18 Local Transformation Plan for Greenwich represents the culmination of a period of extensive engagement with children, families and other organisations. It displays our commitment to addressing the gaps and inequalities within the borough's mental health and wellbeing services for children and young people at a time of urgent need.

The plan outlines our firm commitment to helping children and families to access appropriate support in the right care settings, whilst also supporting services to create and sustain the capacity to manage the rise in demand. Crucially, the plan addresses the need for further integration of care pathways and joint working with other children's services, so that we can take full advantage of every contact with a child, regardless of the setting.

The value of joint working is therefore reinforced throughout the plan and remains integral in helping us to achieve our shared vision for children and families in Greenwich, as articulated in the recently published Greenwich Children & Young People Plan – to secure strong foundations, to increase resilience in communities, and to intervene early before problems become entrenched.
