Kerry CYPSC was founded on 14th September 2010 and has since been working hard to establish connections with agencies and services across Kerry and the rest of Ireland, to make sure children, young people, and their families have access to services and support they may need.

At Kerry CYPSC, we put these people at the forefront of everything we do, always seeking to improve outcomes and ensure the right help is accessible.

CYPSCs bring together all county-level statutory, community, and voluntary organisations who provide services and supports to children and young people (aged 0-24) and their families.
