One of the partners of the Redbridge LSCB is the Redbridge Children and Young People’s Network (RYCPN).
The Network is an ‘umbrella’ organisation which aims to support all voluntary and community groups working in Redbridge with children and young people aged 0 – 25 years.

The Network is represented on the Board and several of the Sub Groups.
