FYI Newsletter Survey Results

FYI Newsletter Survey Results

In January 2019, Southern Area Locality Planning 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, Southern Area 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).

With ‘FYI’ having moved into its 80th edition in April this year, the time was right for us to review our fortnightly newsletter and how it is making an impact on the ground.

The good news is that the Southern Area Locality Development Team are already making positive changes to our e-bulletin on the back of feedback received through the recent survey!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who responded to our survey and told us how you view ‘FYI’. Thanks, too, to all of our Southern Area LPG members and newsletter recipients for their continued support of this information sharing service.

Summer Is Coming! – Southern Area Summer Activities Directory 2022

CYPSP have produced this resource to promote summer activities for children and young people throughout the Southern Area.

This resource was produced to link  children and young people with summer activities and help reconnect with their friends, activities and services in the local area.

Please share it amongst parents, young people and colleagues with whom you work.

We need your assistance! As page 3 states, we are currently putting the finishing touches to our Summer Activities Directory and will be sending it to you very soon. We need this to get into the hands of families, practitioners and all our contacts, as now is the time to sign up for local activities. Please share this valuable resource as widely and as soon as possible. Instructions on how to share it and ‘FYI’ via social media can be found on page 37.

In the next edition we will share the findings of our recent survey on this newsletter. Once again, thanks to all those who responded and told us how you view ‘FYI’. We are already making positive changes to our e-bulletin on the back of your feedback!

Southern Area FYI Newsletter – Issue 82

Welcome to the 82nd edition of our information bulletin, ‘FYI’ (For Your Information).

Download Issue 82 – 12 May 2022

As you may be aware, this week is Mental Health Awareness Week. Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health are one of our 3 top priorities in the Southern Trust Area and we are promoting many relevant key services and resources in this edition of ‘FYI’. We know there are many more services and resources so please keep sharing them with us and we will be happy to keep these included.

One of the ways to promote good emotional wellbeing is to see children and young people engaged in positive activities in their local area, so you will see on page 3 a great way for all organisations and services to share their summer activities and schemes in the Southern Trust Area with others with whom they work.

Based on recent feedback from our ‘FYI’ Members Survey, we are now organising the Southern Trust Area section by theme which will hopefully make navigating the information contained in ‘FYI’ even more straightforward!
