Social Services Northern Ireland, Fermanagh, Study, Bebo

Starting next Tuesday, a number of public meetings have been organised at which the authors of a study into the nature and scope of anti-social behaviour in Fermanagh will invite comments from the floor.

Fermanagh District Council has commissioned Glendinning Consulting, who are based at Markethill, County Armagh to undertake research into the nature and scope of anti-social behaviour in the county.

"This research", a spokesman for Glendenning Consulting explained, "is taking place at a time when there is regional and national debate on anti social behaviour. This work in Fermanagh is innovative and is the first of its type in NI.

"The views will not contribute to policy development in the county, but may form part of the broader picture on an issue which is currently at the top of a number of agendas".

He urged community Groups to come and participate and give their views and contribute to development of ideas to prevent anti-social behaviour.

"We are researching antisocial behaviour in County Fermanagh. We want to know what it is, where it happens, why it happens and what could be done about it.

"Have you been the victim of antisocial behaviour?. Have you (or people you know) been accused of antisocial behaviour (rightly or wrongly)?. What do you think causes it? Is everybody going over the top about it?"

No names will be reported, and anyone is asked to feel free to contact the authors of the Study directly if they have something to say.

A number of open forums have been arranged to which people are invited to come along and make their contribution. They are as follows: - Tuesday 14 November (8pm-10pm) at Lisnaskea Enterprise Centre at Drumbrughas North (on the Maguiresbridge Road end of the town); Thursday 16 November (8pm-10pm), in the Carlton Hotel, Belleek; Monday 20 November (8pm-10pm) Kinawley Enterprise Centre;

Wednesday, 22 November (2.30-4.30 pm), in the Housing Executive District Offices at Riverview House, Head Street Enniskillen; and, on the same evening, between 8pm-10pm), in Ederney Townhall.

The spokesman for Glendenning Consulting offered a number of core questions that people might like to mull over in advance.

For instance, what do they consider to be anti-social behaviour?

Why do you think people engage in this type of activity?

Are there organised activities for young people?

Are there particular places/times where anti-social behaviour takes place?

"Our researchers are very interested in getting the views of young people and have decided to use BEBO as a way to access this important group. A BEBO web page has been set up and can be accessed here

Will Glendinning who is leading the research told the 'Herald': 'Young people are used to communicating by text, and the internet, so in this way, we can use new technology to bring an important dimension to the research.

"It provides an easy safe and confidential way for people to have their say.'
