Changing Childhood in the Northern Outcomes Area

The rise in addiction to modern day technology and unhealthy food and its effects on children and families was the main focus of a recent Changing Childhood Conference in Burnavon Arts Centre, Cookstown. The conference brought together 90 professionals from community, voluntary and statutory agencies to help provide more support to staff and families dealing with these issues.

Selena Ramsey, Locality Planner in the Northern Area welcomed delegates to the conference and said, “This was a great event and covered many of the topics which we regularly hear children, young people and their parents are facing on a daily basis.  Evaluations from the conference noted that it was very thought provoking and considerable learning was noted”.
