As our last ‘FYI’ for 2022, we thank you for your support, readership and submissions of information throughout the year. It has been a very challenging year in many ways, however demonstrates the need to support everything and everyone working in our communities for the benefit of children, young people and families.

We extend our invitation to all practitioners and volunteers to attend any of our LPG meetings and have included a calendar for all our 6 LPG meeting dates in 2023 on Page 3.

If you would like to receive any of the flyers included as individual attachments (for forward sharing), please just e-mail localityplanning@ci-ni.org.uk and we will send that by return.

Wishing you a very restful festive period and best wishes for the new year!

We are enjoying re-connecting with our Locality Planning Group members via our face-to-face meetings from October to December and will alternate these meetings between face-to-face and Zoom, to accommodate all members. These meetings give us the chance to make great contacts and connections, and to share information like we include in ‘FYI’.  If you work to improve the lives of children and young people (including family/parent support), you are most welcome to attend one of our LPG meetings. Contact us to find out more.

We have one more edition of ‘FYI’ between now and the end of the year, so please send any information or notification of events, etc. to us by the end of Tuesday 6th December.

Welcome to the 92nd edition of our information bulletin, ‘FYI’ (For Your Information).

In the run-up to Christmas, we are learning more about the challenges faced by families and services through the Cost of Living Crisis. We continue to encourage those organisations and services who provide support for families to add their details to the CYPSP resource on page 3 and also to use this to help signpost families to much needed support.

The need for effective partnership working and communication has never been greater, so we extend an invite to all our readership, either working or volunteering with children, young people or families, to attend one of our Locality Planning Group meetings, where we exchange information, contacts and signposting opportunities, as well as providing mutual support with a cup of tea in an informal arena. Dates of these meetings can be found on page 49.

 The next issue of ‘FYI’ will be circulated on Thursday 24th November 2022.
