Carrickfergus Local Strategy Partnership (LSP) expressed an interest in the locality model in 2003 due to a number of concerns including low levels of educational attainment in the area. Following discussions the process was initiated by an Information Seminar jointly hosted by the LSP and the NACYPC.

The Seminar was well attended and the first Steering Group meeting comprised of 25 different organisations. Funding for a project worker was secured by the YMCA in a bid to the LSP. The worker was employed for one year to carry out an audit of need and services. This informed an action plan drawn up by the Group and was included in the Children’s Services plan.

The Catalyst Project led by the YMCA had developed a partnership of agencies to look at the needs of 13-25 year olds in the area. This partnership agreed to act as a Sub-Group, feeding into the planning process allowing the Locality Group to concentrate on assessing the needs of the younger age group.
