CYPSP

It is anticipated that CYPSP Locality Planning groups will not be meeting face to face for some time. At this difficult time, we will continue to work hard to provide updates and information which may be of benefit to organisations, children and families. We will be undertaking a scoping exercise of locality planning members activity so that we can provide the most up to date information about the resources available.

The Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership (CYPSP) brings together a range of agencies, including voluntary and community sector organisations, that aim to improve the lives of children and young people in Northern Ireland.

In the past, despite best efforts, everyone who worked with children and young people provided services separately which only created problems for children and young people, and their families and wasted resources. The CYPSP aims to plan and provide services for children and young people more efficiently by making joint decisions about the services needed, and funding these services together.

Importantly, the CYPSP emphasizes a rights-based approach to its work. This means planning services that uphold children’s rights and encouraging children, young people and their parents to participate in the process.
