3 OUR LAYC LAYC is a member based organisation providing a range of support to over 140 youth and children's groups. LAYC covers the City of Edinburgh, East, Mid and West Lothian and accepts into annual members from not for profit groups that work with young people and children and who meets our membership criteria. We are a membership based organisation aiming to strengthen youth and children's work by supporting members to provide positive opportunities for children and young people. We have a history of innovation and development which reflects the changing needs of groups who deliver local provision. LAYC is supported mainly by The City of Edinburgh Council by way of a staff secondment and other funding. We are also assisted by East Lothian and West Lothian Councils by grants and Midlothian by other funding. In Edinburgh LAYC provides support to the Edinburgh Youth Work Consortium (EYWC). This group brings together youth work providers who work collaboratively to advance youth work across the sector and city. LAYC is part of the Youth Scotland Network, which provides joint membership and access to a range of services e.g. training, insurance. OUR CONTEXT In determining our strategic aims, the Board has taken account of the current policy context and has been informed by a number of these key drivers both current and future. This includes: Scottish Government's National Performance Outcomes National Youth Work Strategy Council's Single Plans or Outcome Agreements Council departments' strategic plans Curriculum for Excellence Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC) The City of Edinburgh Council's 'Believing in Young People' Report Community Learning & Development 3 year plans We are aware that Local Councils' budget positions for the next few years will tighten and in particular funding/support for youth and children's work is likely to diminish. Given this increasing pressure on funding, member groups will need to be more skilful in securing core and developmental funds. LAYC are therefore committed to promoting the impact and benefits of community based/universal youth work and supporting member groups to identify other funding opportunities. We are aware that the ability to demonstrate the positive outcomes of quality youth and children's work, relates to the early intervention agenda and how investment in preventative approaches can reap longer term rewards. We also recognise that the pressure on Local Councils to commission and tender for services remains. However, collaborative and cooperative approaches bring significant mutual benefits that echo with our values. We remain committed to high quality youth and children's work because it is best able to deliver on the country's ambition to 'provide the best start' and 'most positive destinations' for our young people and children. We understand the importance of robust planning, quality delivery and evaluation and the need to monitor performance against identified outputs and outcomes. Within each of our stated aims we will monitor, evaluate and assess progress. A summary report will be submitted to the Board on a regular basis to enable monitoring and any actions required to meet or adapt the identified aims. page 3

4 OUR PROCESS LAYC is governed by an elected Board of Trustees who are responsible for strategic decisions and overseeing the operational work. LAYC undertook a significant consultation with member groups to assess what their needs were currently and what challenges they faced over the next few years. This Strategic Plan outlines the vision and priorities for LAYC over the next 3 years and how we will achieve and meet those. In turn, the Strategic Plan takes a number of distinctive aims and outcomes identified by and from the needs of member groups and shows how LAYC will strive to meet these. OUR VALUES We believe in young people and children and in their inherent right to access universal youth and children's provision that is shaped by their needs and aspirations. We believe that supported and encouraged local communities, are best placed to nurture and develop the children and young people who live there. We believe that quality youth work needs to be based on a voluntary relationship which starts where young people are and works alongside them on a learning journey. We believe children's work needs to be child centred and reflect play principles that embrace self discovery and learning by doing. We believe that adults who work with children and young people need to be adequately checked, trained and encouraged to deliver quality provision. We believe co-operation and collaboration at club, community and Council levels provides better services for children and young people. We believe in supporting local communities to value children and young people and realise their potential. We believe that equality and integrity lies at the heart of what we do and is essential in being an honest, reliable and trustworthy organisation. OUR MISSION LAYC will champion, grow and strengthen the quality of youth and children's work by supporting our members to provide positive opportunities for children and young people. page 4
