Dublin City North CYPSC: Invite to Tender

Invitation to Tender (Amended)

Dublin City North Children and Young People’s Services Committee (DCN CYPSC) invites tender submissions to develop a 3-year Children and Young People’s Plan (2023 – 2025) for the region.

Children and Young People’s Services Committees (CYPSC) are a key structure identified by Government to plan and co-ordinate services for children and young people in every county in Ireland. Their age remit spans all children and young people aged from 0 to 24 years. The purpose of CYPSC is to ensure effective interagency co-ordination and collaboration to achieve the best outcomes for all children and young people in their area.​ The Committees are responsible for improving the lives of children, young people and families at local and community level by improving provision and delivery of key services. Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures (BOBF) Framework (2014-2020) is a key policy document for CYPSC which provides a structure for planning and actions. CYPSC: Shared Vision, Next Steps provides the road map for the further development of the CYPSC initiative over the period 2019 - 24. Further details about CYPSC can be found here.

Dublin City North CYPSC (DCN CYPSC) was established in 2014, and actively implemented its previous 3-year plan (2018-2020), extending through 2022. A progress review of this plan is available here.

DCN CYPSC now wishes to engage Expert Support to develop its subsequent 3-year plan, drawing on data sources, policy frameworks, research, consultations with children, young people and parents, and service providers, as relevant. The aim is to complete this project by April 2023.  

Submissions should be emailed by October 3rd @ 12 noon to DCN CYPSC Coordinator, Cliodhna Mahony, at cliodhna.mahony@tusla.ie.
