The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone TD, today (4th November) launched the Children and Young People’s Services Committees (CYPSC) Shared Vision, Next Steps 2019 - 2024 .

CYPSC are a key structure identified by Government to plan and co-ordinate services for children and young people in every county in Ireland. The overall purpose is to improve outcomes for children and young people by enhancing interagency co-operation at a local and national level

The aim of Shared Vision, Next Steps 2019–2024 is to provide a road map for the further development of the CYPSC initiative over the next five years.

Shared Vision Next Steps 2019 - 2024 is the successor to the Blueprint for the Development of Children and Young People's Services Committees 2015 - 2017. It takes stock of progress and identifies the most immediate actions which need to be addressed and advanced. This will assist CYPSC to further develop in a strategic, integrated and sustainable manner to support the co-ordination and planning of efficient and effective services for children and young people.

Minister Zappone said:

“Children and Young People’s Services Committees (CYPSC) bring together a diverse group of agencies in their local areas to engage in joint planning of services for children and young people. I see them as a key inter-agency vehicle for the roll-out of initiatives in collaboration with other partners. These efforts are ensuring that our services and supports are planned and coordinated in a way that is responsive and relevant to the needs of our children and young people.
Through ‘Shared Vision Next Steps 2019 – 2024’, the main focus for CYPSC over the next five years is to build and consolidate on the positive work to date, to identify local and national priorities and to foster further collaboration to effect change in local communities. Joined up working and joined up thinking and leadership, both locally and nationally, will be at the forefront of DCYA, CYPSC and Tusla efforts.
Through the actions in ‘Shared Vision, Next Steps 2019 – 2024’, I am confident that both now and in years to come, the impact of these initiatives will be significant, as it will support children and young people, their families, their communities and vulnerable groups who are experiencing difficulties in their lives."
