CCYPFN: Cardiff Children, Young People & Families Network: Cardiff Third Sector Council

The Cardiff Children, Young People and Families Network (CCYPFN) is a network of nearly 400 members of third sector organisations and community groups who work to benefit and improve the well-being of children, young people, their families and carers in Cardiff.

The network co-ordinates and maintains communication channels between the third and statutory sectors, supporting third sector representatives to various strategic groups across Cardiff.

The CCYPFN provides members with the opportunity to:

  • Find out more about the work of other third sector organisations in Cardiff;
  • share information and best practice, and exchange ideas with colleagues both within and across sectors;
  • be part of a collective voice for the third sector in Cardiff;
  • campaign for better services and influence local, national and regional policy and strategies;
  • raise issues and identify gaps in service delivery.

Free membership

Membership is free and opened to members of C3SC working with children, young people (aged 0-25), their families and carers in Cardiff. This can include national or regional third sector organisations’ local projects or offices if they are based in Cardiff.

News and other info

  • When a young person texts 07520 615 718 they will connect to a School Nurse where they can obtain confidential advice, information and support. The service is active Monday to Friday and out of hours there will be a bounce-back messaging system offering a range of contact details for other organisations. Cardiff and Vale UHB are the first in Wales to offer the service which is widely used across England. Chat Health is an additional service to the weekly School Nurse Drop-ins, which are currently being reviewed to ensure that staff are fully equipped to support emotional and mental health issues.
  • “Keeping people well”: Moving More, Eating Well – Creating a Healthy Weight Framework for Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan: Together we have already made really good progress across Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, in keeping people healthy and well, through our wellbeing plans, our Area Plans and our organisational plans, but we have much more to do if we want to be the best in Wales, the UK and to be an exemplar of good practice internationally.  One of our challenges is how we can encourage and support people to achieve a healthy weight, creating healthy opportunities and environments around food and physical activity. It is a key part of well-being, right from pre-birth, through to teenage years, adulthood and older age. Unhealthy weight is becoming the norm. We want to set the challenge of how we can collectively do all that we can to create change across our organisations and teams in delivering action on healthy weight.

Come and help us to get that right, be part of our conversation to get our joint actions for the next 4-5 years!
