New Sub Group Formed focusing on the needs of 18 – 24 Year Olds

Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures: The National Policy Framework for Children and Young People, 2014 – 2020 sets out key commitments to children and young people up to the age of 24. The Waterford CYPSC Children and Young People’s Plan was completed before the move to include young people up to 24. A sub group has now been formed to address this gap. Focus Ireland is chairing the group which has membership from the WSTCYS, Treo, HSE Substance Misuse Team, Tusla Aftercare, Dept of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, HSE Adult Mental Health, Transgender Equality Network Ireland and Waterford Area Partnership.
