This is the first of 3 special editions to promote upcoming summer activities for children and young people in the Southern Area. You will see a call for submissions on Page 4 on what to submit and we are very keen to also take ides for no / very low cost activities that families can do over the summer months with their children.

We have also included our School Uniform Toolkit on Page 3: A free practical resource for use by any group who want to set up and run a recycling scheme in their area. For anyone wishing to find out more about this and learn how we can help support you, please contact us at the usual address.

School Uniform Recycling Toolkit 2024

The Southern Area School Uniform Recycling Toolkit is a FREE resource for any school, community organisation or group to use to help set up a recycling scheme. Including editable flyers, checklist templates and evaluation tools, this resource can be used across Northern Ireland – download here

For anyone who wishes to use the Toolkit, or for further information, contact Darren Curtis, CYPSP, at localityplanning@ci-ni.org.uk, as we aim to track all usage of the resource to demonstrate the impact of this initiative.

See our 2023 Toolkit Infographic to find out about the impact of last year’s School Uniform Recycling Initiative on schools and organisations.

On Page 3, you will see a call to submit any summer activities you are planning and want to promote, as we get asked every year what opportunities are available for children and young people during the summer and so now include these in ‘FYI’ to make everything easier to access.
