This Annual Report and Business Plan dovetails with the overarching outcomes as detailed in North Ayrshire’s Integrated Children’s Services Plan (2005-2008) and reviews the performance of the Committee in accordance with the Scottish Executive's performance indicators.

This survey was carried out in May 2005. It asked 3 questions:

1. How should we provide information about who can help with matters of child well being or protection?
2. Who would you talk to about a child whose well being or protection you were concerned about?
3. If written information was provided how would you like to get it? The document provides results, and compares paper and e-survey responses.
