Antrim/Ballymena Locality Planning Group

A CYPSP scoping exercise was held on Tuesday 28th Jan where members came together to identify what they and their organisations bring to the group, what are the top three children’s wellbeing priority areas for action next year and how we will tackle these priorities.

The findings will be collated and shared and will help shape the CYPSP Antrim/Ballymena locality area group’s action plan for the next year.
