Children & Young People's Providers Forum

The Children and Families voluntary sector in Hackney is made up of over 300 organisations, ranging from small frontline organisations to larger commissioned providers and established national organisations working locally such as Family Action.

Together CYPPF creates a platform to inform, influence and represent the diversity of the Children and families voluntary sector at public sector level.

The VCS work on issues that affect children, young people and families in Hackney. The key areas are Health, Education, Housing and Employment & Support to parents. The sector is organised into 8 networks; early years, school aged children, families neighbourhood representatives and communities of interest such as; disabled children, the play sector and cultural networks such as Hackney Refugee Forum and Hackney African Forum.

Over the last year children's health has taken a higher place on the agenda. The Health and Wellbeing Baord (HWB) has identified childhood obesity as one of the main children's priorities. The focus on health has attracted new members tot he forum and has provided an opportunity to work closer with HSCF to address key children's health issues.
