Cradle to Career

The Cradle to Career Discovery phase focussed on a defined locality, with  numerous  indicators of high levels of deprivation: 

  • Approximately half of the children live in low – income households, three times the national average of 17%. 
  • The five areas are all in the lowest 10% for Income Deprivation Affecting Children (IDACI), Employment, Education Outcomes and Health Outcomes.
  • North Birkenhead is in the lowest 1% of areas nationally of income after housing costs. 
  • In the relevant travel-to-work area, there are only 0.62 jobs for each person aged 16–65.

We know that where deprivation is high, outcomes for children and young people are low, and the barriers of inequity prevent these children and young people from realising their full potential.

  

The aim 

Cradle to Career will bring together the community, families, education sector and local organisations and services with a place-based, collective impact approach to improving outcomes for children and young people. The community voice is the driving force behind direction and interventions. 

 

Shared Measurement

The measurement framework will be collectively designed and implemented and shared with all stakeholders and services who work with children and young people. It will have a positive focus, be informed by a professional understanding of child development and preventative work, and it will define measures of success and clearly reflect the vision developed by the community. 

 

How do we do that 

Right to Succeed will support a number of capacity building interventions in North Birkenhead, these include:  

  • The development of a locally-led governance structure of key stakeholders.  This will be led by the community, and will take responsibility for developing a long-term vision and plan for children and young people in North Birkenhead. 
  • Building capacity with stakeholders, service providers and community members to use evidence-informed practice, enabling collaborative design and implementation of effective strategies. 
  • Building a backbone structure that shares learning from the programme across the area as a means of increasing  understanding of the underlying drivers of disadvantage. This collective learning will promote consistency in the commissioning of early intervention and prevention work.
