Sociodemograhic Profile for County Kilkenny 2018

An extensive sociodemograhic profile of County Kilkenny, with particular emphasis on children, young people and families, was completed by Dr Brendan O’Keeffe of the Institute for Action Research on behalf of the CYPSC.  The findings have been categorised under the Five National Outcomes for Children.  The research has been widely circulated throughout the county and provides much of the basis for the Children and Young People’s Plan (CYPP).

Playing our Part: Our Life - Children and Young People in Kilkenny Today is the report from a consultation with children and young people throughout County Kilkenny.  It was carried out by Callan Workhouse Union, a consultancy group who use a range of methods to consult with children and young people in a very participatory way.  They developed various methods, including games and drama pieces to explore with children and young people what their lives are like and what they identify as their needs.  This work has informed the development of the CYPSC Plan
