Children and young people’s mental health

Bolton’s 2021/22 Local Transformation Plan (LTP) Refresh

The transformation of children and young people’s mental health is led locally. This means local professionals from across the NHS, Public Health, Children’s Social Care, Education, Youth Justice and the Voluntary Sector working together with children, young people and their families to provide the best possible mental health services in Bolton.

To support this local leadership and accountability, NHS England require Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to work with their partners to develop an annual Mental Health Local Transformation Plan (LTP). First published in 2015, Children and Young People’s Mental Health LTPs are strategic documents describing the whole system change required locally to increase access to mental health support for children, young people and their families.

Unlike our previous Local Transformation Plans (LTPs), the 2021/22 refresh takes into account the challenges faced throughout the pandemic and aims to focus on sharing and celebrating the innovative work that local stakeholders and organisations across Bolton have been able to achieve during the most challenging of times. Whilst LTPs should focus predominantly on the provision delivered through the additional investment aligned to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), we feel it is important to also include wider collaborative pieces of work which have positively impacted on children, young people and families. Now more than ever, organisations across Bolton have shown extensive partnership working; often adapting their current service provision quickly to ensure children and young people remain supported at a time like no other. We would like to take this time to thank all the dedicated and hard-working staff and volunteers that have continued to deliver high quality support to children, young people and families across Bolton.

This document should be read in conjunction with the wider Greater Manchester LTP published by the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership (GMHSCP) to acknowledge all the additional progress delivered at scale across each of the 10 localities.

Bolton’s 2021/22 LTP Refresh has been approved through Bolton CCG’s governance processes and was published on the CCG website on Thursday, September 30, 2021.
