The first stage of Guernsey’s new Policy and Resource Plan (“Future Guernsey”) is now up on the States website at www.gov.gg/policyandresourceplan. It will be debated on 15th November.
The aim of the Plan is to “give Guernsey direction and a clear set of priorities”. This is important – GDA members know only too well what happens when the States agrees to something without really making it a priority.
The Plan has an “Inclusive and Equal community” section which includes the statement:
Guernsey should be a place where no one gets left behind. We want to continue the work implementing the strategies and plans approved by the previous States such as: Disability and Inclusion; Supported Living and Ageing Well; Children and Young People’s Plan; and Mental Health and Wellbeing” (page 11).
This document is the initial “vision”. A second, more detailed, version will go to the States in June 2017 after the individual States Committees have had a chance to feed in the work they need to do to implement that vision.
