Children and Families

The AVA Children & Families Network is open to any Third Sector organisations who works with or has an interest in the wellbeing of children, young people, families and carers living in Aberdeenshire. The Network launched in September 2021 and has a growing membership with over 60 organisations. Our bi-monthly Network meetings provide a place for members to make connections with other third sector organisations and gives them an opportunity to highlight the valuable work they do. The Network is a place for peer support that can motivate and inspire growth in our sector.

Our statutory partners are invited to speak about relevant work and seek views from The Network.

The Network also brings together our Third Sector voice which can feed into Children’s Services Planning at a local and national level. In addition to the meetings, each network member receives regular and relevant updates on training, news and developments from a local and national perspective.
