Youth Alliance / Children & Young People's Network
Towards the end of 2021 the Youth Alliance Network and the Children and Young People’s Network came together to connect, share updates and learn about new funding opportunities.
In 2022 we continued to bring these two networks together as one to:
Reduce potential duplication
Streamline the number of meetings take place relating to our young people
Connect a greater number of individuals and organisations who are working with our young people.
Going forward in 2023 and beyond, the Youth Alliance Network and CYPN will focus on sharing information and networking.
It will also explore potential training and upskilling opportunities that its attendees would like to take part in, building on our individual and collective strengths.
The network space will help us in identifying potential gaps and/or duplication in our services and consider how we can best collaborate and co-ordinate ourselves to respond to the needs of our young people, particularly around effective and appropriate initiatives and interventions to tackle a broad range of issues (e.g. ASB, violence, mental health and exploitation).
Our network meetings are held bi-monthly and in person at venues across the city. If you would like to join this network space and don’t currently receive any correspondence relating to it, please contact our Youth Alliance Coordinator Michelle Butler.
