What are the origins of this consortium?

The voluntary CYP sector mandated the task of establishing a consortium to a Consortium Working Group, following a series of presentations held in March 2011. Members of the Working Group, who were selected through a open nomination process, committed to attending no less than eight full days, in order to develop the Business Plan, Membership Prospectus, and (as was decided during the process) to form a legal entity. Commissioners in local authorities and Primary Care Trusts have been appraised of the developments on an ongoing basis.
