Omagh Locality Planning Group

Six Locality Action Groups where initially formed in 2006 coordinated by Action for Children, ultimately accountable to the Children’s Service Planner. In 2011 these groups reconfigured into five Locality Planning Groups continuing to be coordinated by Action for Children reporting directly to the Western Outcomes Group.

The Purpose of the Western Locality Planning Groups is to carry out outcomes based integrated planning for children and young people at the level of geography which makes sense locally, making improvements in the six high level outcomes for local children & young people and ensuring issues identified are addressed locally & through the strategic planning processes. The Role of each Locality Planning Group is to be a partnership between local children, young people, families, communities & representatives of agencies to draw up a locality plan to address priorities identified through outcomes based planning and to mobilise local resources from the statutory, voluntary and community sectors to address these priorities. This work will be carried out within the context of the Children & Young People’s Strategic Partnership.

Action Plan and Priorities

Achievements

The Western Locality Planning Groups have acted as a catalyst to bring together over one hundred organisations and agencies with individual priorities reconciled under the banner of the Children & Young people’s Strategic Partnership which is responsible to the outcomes of local families. The opportunity for multi-agency networking, collaborative planning, development and working has been immense, and has seen significant achievements.

Members have had opportunities for joint working, funding and training within often complex organisational structures, they have also used their local connections to cascade this knowledge out into their communities.

The Locality Planning Groups have been able to review, shape and input into indicators of how well families in areas are achieving and have passed this local knowledge onto the Western Outcomes Group who have then consulted about this information.

Involvement in the design of the Family Support NI.

Involvement in the design and development of Family Support Hubs across the West.
