This week is National Parenting Week, so we have started off this edition with key support and services to assist local families.  We have also included information relating to National Adoption Week, which again is this week.


You will find a lot of new opportunities throughout the edition, including a chance to learn more about, and contribute to, the new Emotional Health and Wellbeing Network’s Framework – See Page 23 for a brief description of this and avail of the opportunities to attend an online and face-to-face session to help shape this key piece of work. Emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people remains one of, if not, the most pertinent issue and priority for all of our Locality Planning Groups.


We hope you get something from this edition. Your feedback is welcome, as always!
