Access: Needs Analysis 

DCS CYPSC through Belong To, to engage an independent researcher to consult with young people and assess the current levels of satisfaction and address some of the key barriers and priority issues for the future. we still know very about mental health needs and pathways for this population.



In association with TUSLA Dublin South Central and Building Community Resilience a  report on Trauma Informed Practice with key strategic partners in DCS CYPSC area was conducted in July 2021. The aim of this consultationwas to explore their knowledge and understanding of Trauma Informed Practice in order to plan for future work. The findings clearly demonstrate that services are aware of and interested in the practice. At all levels of service people want a deeper understanding of what it means to their work and how it can support the children, young people and families in the Dublin South City Area.

It is the role of DCS CYPSC to support an interagency approach to local service delivery and this report confirms that services and agencies will commit to a coordinated response to this practice going forward. DCS CYPSC will lead on that commitment in developing the next steps to Trauma Informed Practice in the area. - LINK to report
