The five outcomes: The Every Child Matters green paper identified the five outcomes that are most important to children and young people. They are:

  • Be healthy
  • Stay safe
  • Enjoy and achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve economic well-being

The five outcomes are ambitions for every child and young person regardless of their background or circumstances. Improving outcomes for all children and young people is the key objective of Children’s Services and Children’s Trusts

This means that the organisations involved with providing services to children are teaming up, sharing information and working together, to protect children and young people from harm and help them achieve what they want in life.
