Donegal Children & Young People's Plan 2021-2023 

Following consultation activities with a wide range of stakeholders including Children, Young People, Parents, CYPSC Partner Agencies and their representatives on CYPSC Subcommittees, the Children & Young People's Plan 2021-2023 was completed and submitted to the Quality Assurance Panel in November 2020. The Quality Assurance process was delayed due to the impact of COVID 19 public health restrictions and feedback further delayed due to the Cyber Attack on HSE & Tusla ICT Systems. 

The Consultation Report, Audit of Services and Socio-demographic Profile of County Donegal is available. Please see the 'Local Resources' section for more information. A link to the full Donegal Children & Young People's Plan 2021-2023 will be posted here as soon as possible. Apologies for any inconvenience.
