Young Crawley Children & Families Forum

If you are part of an organisation working with children and families in Crawley and you’d like to have a voice in relevant local issues, then this quarterly forum is for you. Its aim is to bring together individuals and representatives from voluntary, community and statutory organisations working with children and families in Crawley to meet, share information, experience and action. All are welcome to attend meetings and join our e-mail network.

If your organisation works with young people and teenagers, you may wish to be a part of the Crawley Borough Council-led Young Crawley Youth Forum, which is linked to this Forum. Contact Kathryn Ripley at Crawley Borough Council for further information:

As well as these Forum meetings, Young Crawley has a consortium of voluntary and community sector organisations which aims to deliver integrated services for children, young people and families in the town. It is currently funded to deliver the Young Crawley Family Credits Project for families who have an Early Help Plan, and the CREW Project to support children, young people, families and staff with mental health and emotional wellbeing in local schools. For more information about the Consortium, including how to join, contact Lisa Phillips on 01293 657011, or at

The Young Crawley Guarantee has been introduced to ensure that there is a quality assurance process for membership of Young Crawley. This award looks at elements of safe working but will also ensure that monitoring and financial systems are in place, which are essential when contracts are awarded. The Young Crawley Guarantee has the backing of Crawley Borough Council.

The award is open to all voluntary and community organisations working with children and families in Crawley. To apply for this award or for further information please contact Partnership Manager, Lisa Phillips.
