Two new Sub-Groups were set up to assist in completing a number of identified tasks required to develop Cork CYPSC's Children and Young People’s Plan:

i) Voice of the Child/Young Person

ii) Information and Research

The primary focus of these groups is to:

  • Develop a socio-demographic profile of children and families in the area
  • Map the services currently available in the area.
  • Identify the gaps and priorities in relation to population groups and services in the area and link them to the 5 National Outcome areas for children.
  • Ensuring the ‘voice of each child and young person' is heard and represented.


A decision was also made by the Chair to bring one existing group under the umbrella of the CYPSC as a Sub-Group:

Prevention, Partnership and Family Support

Chair: Ger Phillips, Project Leader, Springboard, Tusla the Child and Family Agency
