Southern Area Locality Planning: FYI Newsletter

Southern Area Locality Planning have recently introduced a new innovative way of sharing information on the great work of services and organisations striving to improve outcomes for children, young people and families in the Southern Trust area.  With the aim of strengthening contacts, participation, engagement and connections in the region, LPG members, as well as the wider community, are invited to submit flyers, posters & announcements promoting relevant events, opportunities, programmes and initiatives. All of this information is then collated and shared via a one-stop shop style newsletter – ‘FYI’ (For Your Information).
 
Moving into its 14th edition in August 2019, the fortnightly ‘FYI’ e-bulletin, circulated on alternate Thursday afternoons, now reaches approx. 700 contacts and regularly advertises at least 20 opportunities on behalf of a varied range of community, voluntary & statutory organisations. More recently, the newsletter has also been circulated to the C2k education network.
 
View the most recent edition of ‘FYI’ here: http://www.cypsp.hscni.net/southern-area-lpg-information-bulletin-issue-13-25th-july-2019/
 
If you wish to make a submission, for sharing across the southern area LPG membership and wider community, or if you would like to receive future ‘FYI’ bulletins, please just get in touch, by e-mailing localityplanning@ci-ni.org.uk.
