This month we are looking for articles that highlight:
- Reviews of the success of summer time activities for C&YP
- Changes in service provision
- Recognition of achievements by children, young people and their families
- Activities where C&YP have influenced decision making, especially in their communities
CYP Bulletin (fortnightly)
The CYPSU continues to produce an online fortnightly bulletin of information about children and young people and services including research and development, local and national events, conferences and courses, celebrations and achievements.
This bulletin is a regular brief update for Swansea CYP partnership partners and is a way of accessing communication from the CYP Partnership, other local partners as well as information we receive as a partnership from WAG.
If you would like to forward information for inclusion in the bulletin please forward brief information to firstname.lastname@example.org
- It is preferable that this information is forwarded as a brief commentary with a hyperlink to other larger documents or websites etc.
- Please ensure that you make the subject of your email to Stuart as “CYP bulletin” with a date if there is a short deadline.
- Please can you also highlight the information (if it is part of a larger email/document) you want to be in the bulletin in BLUE

The partnerships are funded by the Welsh Assembly Government. Their vision is for a better start in life, good health, learning opportunity, safe play/leisure and community support. Most importantly their aim is for young people to be listened to and respected.
We pass relevant information on to local organisations working with 0-25s. We work with particular regard to the partnerships but present general news online, in newsletters and through email.
We have established a Children & Young People Third Sector Forum. The meetings have been very well attended and incredibly informative so far, in fact so successful it has been decided that they should take place every two months - Click here
