South Armagh Locality Planning Group

Posted on by

The South Armagh Locality Planning Group was established in the Spring of 2010. The group is made up of a broad range of community, statutory and voluntary organisations with a remit for children and young people in the area. The group aims to improve the well-being of children and young people through a multi-agency planning approach. The initial meetings dealt with the establishment of the LPG, function and remit and training on the Outcomes Based Planning Model.
