CYPSC Co-ordinator, Thérèse Ruane discusses the development of Mayo CYPSC at its early stages on Mid-West radio to raise awareness about CYPSC, Ireland's five national outcomes for children and young people and the development of Mayo's Children and Young People’s Plan (2018-2020). 

'Throughout the planning process, we want to ensure that children, young people and parents have their say and input into the plan, and that, at the same time, they gain a better understanding of what CYPSC is and what the five national outcomes mean to them and how they live their lives'.

To achieve this, Mayo CYPSC is carrying out extensive consultation with children of all ages, young people, parents as well as service providers. To start this process, Mayo CYPSC has launched three surveys.If you live in Mayo, and would like to participate in the Mayo CYPSC surveys, here are the links: 

Focus groups and age-appropriate events with children and young people are currently on-going as well with particular focus on hearing and including the voice of more socially excluded groups in Mayo.

To kick-start the consultation process, Mayo CYPSC Co-ordinator, Thérèse Ruane, talked to Angelina Nugent on Mid-West Radio 96.1 FM about CYPSC, the five national outcomes, the Mayo Children and Young People’s Plan and the Mayo CYPSC youth survey.
