Down Locality Planning Group

Posted on by

The Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership (CYPSP) Down Locality Planning Group was launched on 22 November 2016 in the Ballymote Community Centre, Downpatrick.

The locality group is made up of a broad range of over 15 community, statutory and voluntary organisations including Lisburn and North Down YMCA’s, Action for Children, Bryson Charitable Group, Early Years, Home Start, Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust and many more. All locality members are committed to improving outcomes for children and young people through a multi-agency planning approach.

The locality planning group is an ongoing process of engagement with children, young people and their families. This group will take into account the emerging needs through evidence based information alongside local knowledge to collaboratively address the issues affecting children, young people and their families from across the locality.
