CYPSP

At the onset of the Covid19 pandemic, we anticipated that all our multi-agency partners who make up CYPSP, Outcomes Groups, Locality Planning groups and family support hubs would not be able to meet face to face for some time, and we have now adapted to meet virtually to continue to work hard to provide vital updates, supports and information to organisations, children and families. We developed our Covid19 Support and Resources page which provides a central hub of information. Click Here

2020 Aisling Bursary Initiative

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.
