Wexford CYPSC supported an application to The Wheel in December 2014 for training to "Integrate Equality and Human Rights into Organisational Policies, Plans, Procedures and Practices". The application was approved and several members of Wexford CYPSC participated in the training which took place over the course of one year.
Wexford CYPSC also developed an "Equality and Human Rights Statement" in 2015, with a view to developing the capacity of the committee to have regard to equality and human rights in its work. The statement was reviewed and updated in 2018 and can be viewed here.
Wexford CYPSC has developed a website with information on services and supports that are available for children, young people and families in Co. Wexford.

In 2019, Wexford CYPSC supported the development of Wexford Parents Hub - a virtual hub that co-ordinates parenting enquiries and supports. The Hub has its own page on the Wexford CYPSC website and is also very active on Facebook.
