Children & Young People Network

The Children and Young People Network provides the opportunity for anyone involved in Children's Services in Derby, to share information with the aim of improving the lives of children, young people and families.


Statement from Pam Hallam, CYPN Chair:

As you are aware, due to lack of funds the Children and Young People Network (Derby) C.I.C (CYPN) will be closing on 31 March 2018. In order to ensure the Children's Voluntary and Community Sector remains on the agenda Pam Hallam, Chair CYPN, has been asked to join Community Action (CA) Board and as such is a co-opted member and will be nominated for full membership at their Annual General Meeting on 11 October 2017. This is to facilitate a smooth merger of CYPN with CA.

CYPN comes to the end of its 2 year funding from Tudor Trust at the end of this month but still had plans to complete further work. In view of the arrangements from 1 April 2018 a bid for that further work was sent from CA to Tudor Trust. This was successful so CA will continue with CYPN "Evidence It".

The final CYPN AGM took place last week and those members present endorsed the agreement for CYPN to merge with CA as of 1 April 2018.
