Southern Area LPG Newsletter – 3 September 2020

Welcome to Issue 43 of ‘FYI’.

Firstly, we would like to thank all of our member organisations who have continued to provide programmes, activities, workshops and webinars to support children, young people and their families across the SHSCT area, particularly during what has been a challenging summer and a different ‘back to school’ period for us all.

As we settle back into new routines once again, we would invite our LPG members to highlight upcoming relevant opportunities, referring to the final page of this newsletter for guidance as to how best to submit your information.

Stay safe, connected, updated and supported with ‘FYI’!

Kind Regards,

Southern Area Locality Planning Team
