Meeting dates:
Meetings are held quarterly. These are currently being held as joint meetings with the Vulnerable Adults' Providers Network (VAPN). Many issues raised at recent meetings have been relevant to both Networks, so this arrangement gives participants an opportunity to develop wider partnerships. In response to the COVID-19 situation, meetings take place online via Zoom.

  • The next meeting will be a joint meeting with the Vulnerable Adults' Providers Network (VAPN) via Zoom on Thursday 18 August 2022 from 10am to 12 noon - to ensure you receive the Zoom meeting joining instructions, please register your attendance here.
  • Future meetings are scheduled on:
    Thursday 17 November 2022 from 10am to 12 noon
    Thursday 16 March 2023 from 10am to 12 noon

    We will send out a reminder to register attendance for these meetings nearer the time. In the meantime, please note these dates in your calendar.

Who can join the network?
Membership is open to any community and voluntary organisation providing services or support to children and young people from 0 - 24 years in Nottingham. You needn't be based in the City but you must be providing services to children and young people who do live within Nottingham City.

Do I have to attend all the meetings?
We know how busy organisations are so you don’t have to attend every meeting. The meetings are for information sharing, and we make sure that all members receive key information and action notes from the meetings, including any speaker presentations.

Membership benefits:
As a network member you will receive regular information on consultations, events and training. There is the opportunity to directly contribute to the Children’s Partnership Board, and we also have representatives that sit on the children and young adults Safeguarding Board who can take any safeguarding queries directly to the right people.

You will be made aware of services that are being commissioned in the local area and how you can access opportunities for your organisation. Ensure that your voice is heard not only in Nottingham, but that you are contributing to the regional and national agenda for children and young people.
