Inspiring young people in Carrickfergus


The Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership (CYPSP) Carrickfergus Locality Planning Group recently facilitated the launch of a local social media Facebook page ‘Carrickfergus Community Education Forum’ to provide a space for agencies to share information about education support services, helpful resources and training opportunities for young people and their parents.

MLA Roy Beggs, Chairperson of the CYPSP Carrickfergus Locality Planning Group supported the development of the support platform for parents. Speaking from the launch Roy Beggs said “School, parents and the local community all working together can reduce Educational under attainment and open up greater life-time opportunities. I hope that the new Facebook page, “Carrickfergus Community Education Forum” will help parents by sharing good advice and by sign-posting to local services.  I hope that it would also highlight adult educational opportunities and assist in establishing regular local Carrickfergus classes outside of the NRC Newtownabbey campus”.
