Please note:
It is anticipated that CYPSP Locality Planning groups will not be meeting face to face for some time. At this difficult time, we will continue to work hard to provide updates and information which may be of benefit to organisations, children and families. We will be undertaking a scoping exercise of locality planning members activity so that we can provide the most up to date information about the resources available. We will provide daily updates via CYPSP website and through social media which will also assist Family Support Hubs.

To ensure we share as much important information and advice as we can, we are encouraging Locality Planning Group members to provide any local information for inclusion on the daily updates on the attached form and send to una.casey@hscni.net.

If you would like to have advice or a service included below on this page please email details to valerie.maxwell@hscni.net
