Down Locality Planning Group Action Plan

 In February 2020 Ards & North Down and Down locality planning groups hosted a joint planning meeting prior to compiling their 3 year action plan. 

The HSC Leadership centre facilitated the event, where both groups had the opportunity to scope their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.  This exercise gave the groups a balanced critique of their performance to date. 



The second part of the event focused on the expressed needs of both communities, this was framed by the needs analysis report from previous focus groups and surveys. 

Three themes emerged; Communication, Mental Health & Wellbeing and Poverty. 

The findings will be presented to the South Eastern Outcomes Group.
