The Newry Locality Planning Group hosted a workshop in May for services and organisations in the local area to come together and share good practice on how agencies are shaping their services around children and young people with a disability to ensure the inclusiveness of all children.
The Newry Locality Planning Group’s Disability Sub Group hosted a workshop on 24 May at Newry Youth Resource Centre for agencies to further the agenda on how they can best support children and young people with a disability.
The workshop was attended by twenty seven people and a full day’s programme commenced with a speed networking session where 150 new contacts were made by participants. Participants then learnt of good practice within the Southern HSC Trust area with presentations from the Southern HSC Trust Transition Service, Confederation of Community Groups and Newry, Mourne and Down District Council. Further good practice was shared by participants to recognise the existing innovative work that is being delivered in the local area.
The workshop culminated in a brief overview of Outcomes Based Accountability by Nicola Doran of SAIL, which seamlessly transitioned into a Turning the Curve exercise which provided a wide and varied list of actions for the Newry LPG to progress under the theme of disability.
