The Antrim Children and Young People’s Locality Group is a partnership of agencies from the statutory, voluntary and community sectors who come together to provide local solutions to the identified needs of children, young people and their families in the Antrim area. The group is led by Antrim Borough Council and is a sub group of the Northern Outcomes Group linking to the CYPSP. The Group was formally launched on 24 October 2007. Membership is open to all organisations who provide services in the area and the group is particularly keen to hear from children, young people and families themselves. We recognise that by working together we can all achieve better outcomes for our children and young people.
