Mayo Children and Young People's Services Committee was established in 2015 and draws its membership from the main statutory, community and voluntary providers of services to children and young people in County Mayo. While the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) provides the policy lead for CYPSC nationally, strategic leadership here in Mayo is provided by the Tusla Area Manager and Chairperson of Mayo Children and Young People’s Services Committee, Paddy Martin.

In October 2016, Thérèse Ruane was appointed as Mayo Children and Young Person’s Services Committee Co-ordinator.

Mayo CYPSC provides a forum for joint planning, improved delivery and coordination of services and supports for children, young people and their families in the county. We wish to realise the best possible outcomes for children and young people aged 0-24 years in Mayo as set out in the five national outcomes identified in Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures: the national policy framework for children and young people 2014 - 2020 which are:

 

  1. Active and Healthy (physical and mental wellbeing)
  2. Achieving full potential in learning and development
  3. Safe and protected from harm
  4. Economic Security and Opportunity
  5. Connected, Respected and contributing to their world

 

Mayo Children and Young People’s Services Committee’s has just completed its first 3 year strategic plan. This plan, which is called the Mayo Children and Young People's Plan,  is the first plan of its kind for County Mayo. In order to develop and inform the plan, Mayo CYPSC compiled the following: 

  • Socio Demographic Profile
  • Audit of Services working with Children, Young People & Families in Mayo
  • Local Needs Analysis in Mayo - involving consultation with children, young people, parents and service providers. 

Mayo Children and Young People’s Services committee looks forward to working in partnership with statutory and voluntary agencies as well as children, young people and families to deliver the actions identified in the Mayo Children and Young People's Plan.

Working together, we hope to improve services and supports for children and young people so that they can grow up in a safe, happy and secure environment and move confidently into adulthood equipped with the skills for life.
