The IASSN children and young people’s network was established so that staff working in IAS Services whose focus is supporting CYP could meet and communicate in order to:
- Share successes of working with children and young people
- Discuss challenges to providing IAS to children and young people
- Share practice and resources
- Discuss topical issues and casework
It was agreed at the June 2017 meeting that going forward all regions are to be encouraged to have their own regular YP meetings and that the national network would host an annual YP network meeting bringing together all regions.
It was also proposed that YP work should be standing agenda item at every regional IASS meeting for discussions on strategic work and funding opportunities.
If you haven't already please complete the IASS CYP Support Survey which will give a national picture of the way IASS are providing support directly to CYP.
