The Platform aims to provide an opportunity to build relationships and connect more voices to local public services and decision making bodies. This will help highlight the collective interests of the local community and voluntary sector while acting as a borough wide platform for consultation and engagement. The Platform will also provide an opportunity for community representation on Causeway Coast and Glens Community Planning Partnership through two Co-chairs selected by Platform participants.

The open nomination process attracted two nominations from the sector for the two positions of Co-chair by the closing date of 13th February 2019. Please find brief profiles for these nominees  - follow link https://www.causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk/uploads/general/CCG_CEP_Co-chair_Nominees.docx

At the next Platform meeting you will hear from the nominees themselves about how they would represent the community and voluntary sector of Causeway Coast and Glens. Since there are two nominations for two positions, the meeting will then provide an opportunity to affirm their appointment as the first two Co-chairs of the Causeway Coast and Glens Community Engagement Platform.

 

If you require clarification or wish to raise a query on this process, please e-mail either of the two contacts listed below by Thursday 28th February 2019.

If you are interested in being part of a conversation about inspiring more local voices, then you will also enjoy hearing Eileen Mullan from Strictly Boardroom in what should be a fun, stimulating and interactive session.
