The Young Ireland Advisory Council will provide a forum for civil society and independent experts to advise and support the development and implementation of policies in respect of children and young people.
The Advisory Council will review and provide feedback on the implementation of Young Ireland, with a particular focus on the three Spotlight areas:
• Child and Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing,
• Disability Services, and
• Child Poverty and Well-Being.
The Advisory Council will also provide feedback on the implementation of other cross-government focused strategies for children and youth, such as First Five, the Participation of Children and Young People in Decision Making Action Plan, and progress on Young Ireland’s Enabling Environment.
The Young Ireland Advisory Council is one part of the governance structures being established to drive the implementation of Young Ireland. Existing civil and public servants will not be members of the council but will instead be represented at the Children and Young People’s Policy Forum. Further information about the overall governance structures is available in section 5 of Young Ireland (Governance).
