CYPSC / Healthy Ireland Health and Wellbeing Plan
In 2018, a Health and Wellbeing Plan was developed with funding from the Healthy Ireland Fund. Aligned with Healthy Ireland priorities this plan identifies strategic actions across mental health, sexual health, physical and weight health. Over the next 3 years, CYPSC will work with Healthy Ireland and government departments to fund these actions, working with local partners to oversee and implement the plan. With the support of a number of agencies, CYPSC Dublin City North has been able to support the roll out of some of these actions over 2018/2019. We will look forward to working over the next few years with the community to continue to work towards health and wellbeing actions for children and young people.
You can find the full detailed plan here which is also incorporated into the priorities for out Children and Young People's Plan.
Emotional Health and Wellbeing Action Plan for Finglas North A (6-12 years)
Mac Donald and Kinlen (2018) undertook research into the emotional health and wellbeing of children 6-12 years in Finglas North A. An action plan across the 5 National Outcomes was developed following consultations with children, parents and local workers. This plan will see the new Finglas West Family Resource Centre through Barnardos become the lead actioning group to oversee this plan. As a model of research, it is hoped that once evaluated, this is a model that can be replicated in other parts of Dublin City North. For the full report, please click here.

Critical Incident Management
In response to the recent increase in gangland activity in our community, a group of CYPSC members and other service providers in the North East Inner City came together to explore a community based response. This will include, information for parents about critical incidents, trauma and how to access services; workshops for service providers in the North East Inner City; and an exploration of a restorative justice programme for the community. With the kind permission of the National Educational Psychological Service (NEPS), information is being made available on the CYPSC website for members of the public and service providers about critical incidents and trauma.
