National Quality Standards for Clubs & Groups



The Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) have launched a set of Quality Standards for all Volunteer-led Youth Groups in Ireland.
The overall aim of the standards is to help improve the quality of the programme and activities for young people and the way in which they are provided. In addition, through the standard, young people will be encouraged and supported to have a say in planning, design and delivery of their groups programme and to become more involved in the running of their groups.


As part of the Quality Standards Training and Resource Task Group, CDYSB works with other organisations to prepare a number support documents for those implementing National Quality Standards for Volunteer-led Youth Groups (NSVYG).
