Wexford CYPSC had its initial meeting in February 2014. Later that year, the CYPSC engaged an external facilitator to assist members to develop core operating principles and working methods. These were further embedded by the Working Groups.
An induction day for members of the CYPSC Working Groups took place in September 2014. Following this, five Working Groups were established and began to meet and prioritise their actions.

The five Working Groups are as follows;
Health and Diversity

Prevention, Partnership and Family Support
Young People and Mental Health
Wexford CYPSC also supported an application to The Wheel in December 2014 for training to "Integrate Equality and Human Rights into Organisational Policies, Plans, Procedures and Practices". The application was approved and several members of Wexford CYPSC have taken part in the training which took place over the course of one year.
Wexford CYPSC also developed an "Equality and Human Rights Statement" in 2015, with a view to developing the capacity of the committee to have regard to equality and human rights in its work. Please see "Local Resources" page for more information.
Wexford CYPSC has developed a website with information on services and supports that are available for children, young people and families in Co. Wexford. The site also features information on courses / training currently available and links to national services. The site was officially launched in October 2016. Please see www.wexfordcypsc.ie.
Wexford CYPSC’s initial Children and Young People's Plan (CYPP) is currently in development.
