About Us

Wexford CYPSC (Children & Young People's Services Committee) is a county-wide committee that includes representatives of all the main statutory, community and voluntary agencies and organisations working on behalf of children and young people (aged 0-24 years) in County Wexford.

There are CYPSC’s established or in development in each county in Ireland. Their purpose is to improve the lives of children, young people and families at local and community level. Wexford CYPSC has developed an Equality & Human Rights Statement that underpins the work of the committee.  See WCYPSC Equality & Human Rights Statement 2018.

Restorative Practice

Wexford CYPSC also supports the development of Wexford Restorative Practice Partnership. Please see wrpp.ie for more information.
