The Children’s Services Unit promotes the interests of children and young people (0-18) and works with communities, voluntary agencies, statutory and non statutory agencies. Our overarching aim is to help make Dublin a better place for children/young people and ultimately a more child friendly, playful, inclusive city.
The Dublin City Children’s Services Policy Statement sets out our vision for the city and commitment to play our role in promoting the achievement of the National Wellbeing Outcomes for children.
We take a lead role in play development by promoting the value and benefits of play.
We are responsible for supporting the Dublin City’s Comhairle na nÓg which is a council of young people elected from around the city.
