The event was organised by Martin Sloane at the Belfast Locality Planning Group within CYPSP (Children and Young People's Strategic Partnership). Its aim was to give Head Teachers information on services available in Belfast from a variety of service providers. Each organisation had five minutes with each Head Teacher in order to brief them on available services, referral pathways and criteria and answer any questions.

Gillian Boyd, Youth Matters Deputy Manager, said:

“We enjoyed the buzz of the conversation and lively format. Huge thanks to the organisers for inviting us to participate.”
