Children and Families Network

The Children and Families Network shares information through Children in Wales' forums and networks, via training and events, and through our Linc 3 third sector group and meetings with third sector children's organisations' directors.

We send out information briefings to members and gather information from our third sector contacts in order to support Welsh Government policy development through the TSPC and our other work.


You can join the network by emailing info@childreninwales.org.uk or by filling in the sign-up form on our website, which can be found at www.childreninwales.org.uk.

The three top issues from the children and families third sector are as follows:

• Need for better commissioning from the children and families third sector organisations across all areas -  local, regional and national

• Need to improve the voice and engagement of the children and families third sector into planning and delivery via partnerships 

• Need for better capacity and quality in the children and families sector - need sustainable investment in the children and families sector and also developing volunteering and apprenticeships
