Supporting children to succeed
The Council and its partners such as the NHS have a plan in place which details what we want to work towards achieving for local people. We also set targets on what we want to improve on so that we can monitor how well we are doing.
Single outcome agreement: Outcome 4
'More of our children have a better start in life and are ready to succeed.'
This statement sets out our local outcome that we are working to deliver for our local community. We have selected and displayed the indicators which we think you as a customer might be interested in, for a full list of indicators please refer to the Single Outcome Agreement 2012 and and the Outcome Delivery Plan 2012-2015.
Where there is information available, the Scottish average has been included to demonstrate how well we are doing against the national average.
