Over the last year many more of the CYPPF members have identified households affected by domestic violence. Members are keen that we address this common concern as one of our safety and safeguarding priorities. The CYPPF has met with the DVA team to increase their understanding of strategic agenda and access support for new organisations. Our safeguarding champions continue to pick up this issue in their work on estates and within the community.
Employment Prospects - the CYPPF and Families First partners are aware if the links’ between access to employment education and poverty VCS play an active role in supporting parents to secure employment in a schools ir childcare setting and are aware that many adults are trapped due to; long term health conditions, the cost of studying and lack of childcare. Community Organisations recognise the importance of empowering adults to make a positive contribution.
