One of the Supporting the Third Sector (STTS) Project’s aims is to support the third sector to become fully integrated with Community Planning Partnerships (CPPs) and to contribute to the strategic planning of local children and family services as equal partners.

The STTS Project team has collated information on key policy areas relating to children and young people, along with links and resources that are relevant to our work and provide a wider policy context to the Children’s Service Planning landscape.
