Fermanagh and Omagh Locality Planning Group – Summer Schemes 2019

Summer Schemes, Activities and Rural Transport – Summer 2019

The Fermanagh and Omagh Locality Planning Group members have with the assistance of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and Enniskillen and Omagh Neighbourhood Renewal and many others brought together a new resource for families and practitioners, detailing the exciting activities planned for the coming months.

Organisations across the area have submitted what they are providing ranging from digital film-making to banana boating, including quite a few residential breaks for young people.

The aim of this resource was to provide a flavour of what is on offer and make suggestions for all different ages groups and interests, making the best use of the beautiful local resources that we have on our doorstep.

Members have spent a long time gathering this information however, they think there may be some more activities are schemes taking place which they would love to hear about and will be pleased to add to the resource, making it bigger and better.

Congratulations to Chelsea for receiving The Diana Award

Congratulations to Chelsea for receiving The Diana Award

As a young person with autism, 16 year old Chelsea decided that more needed to be done to support other autistic individuals and created a sensory room in her school in Belfast. With Chelsea’s ideas and insight, she also reshaped our ‘Girls and Autism Friendship Club’, providing girls with autism in the community with a place to socialise in a supportive environment. Autism NI are very proud of Chelsea’s achievements – she is an inspiration.
