Since 2016 the Network has looked at a range of issues including a consultation on youth and play strategy and the refresh of the Youth Council structure. The Network has also engaged with the Children and Families Commissioning Team on the Southwark 16+ Accommodation and Support Project  and also on the Child Sexual Exploitation community engagement project.

The Network has also fed into the Council's activities strategy for young people and how new Commissioning would relate five key themes comprising happy, healthy, active, safe and preparedness. The Network has also had guest presentations from the Prevent Team and also from various stakeholders on the issue of serious youth crime.
