19 Key Messages: While outcomes across the majority of indicators are improving there remain clear links between poorer outcomes and deprivation. There is evidence of improvement in outcomes in areas of higher deprivation but we need to sustain the faster rate of improvement in those areas in order to narrow the gaps. We have undertaken a comprehensive needs analysis across a broad range of indicators for children, young people and families. We have covered a handful of outcomes in this presentation but they reflect the wider findings from the needs analysis.
