About the Programme
T4CYP was launched by the Minister for Health and Social Care at a stakeholder event at the end of February 2015. Led by the NHS in Wales, this multi-agency service improvement programme is working at pace to reshape, remodel and refocus the emotinal and mental health services provided for children and young people in Wales, in line with the principles of prudent health and care. T4CYP is based on a human rights approach and is committed to embedding the 7 Core Aims for children and young people under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
The Windscreen Model
T4CYP is using the Windscreen Model to inform its thinking, which shows how a wide range of services provide a continuum of support for children and families. These services are provided by a wide range of statutory and third sector organisations and so working in partnership to get the balance right between these is central to successfully delivering T4CYP.
