A GROUP of young people from Newtownabbey have learned how to take up the reins of power to actively improve their local community.

Glengormley Irish language youth club Cumann Óige Chroí Éanna was one of a number of youth groups involved in the Partners in Power programme run by the Northern Ireland Youth Forum (NIYF).

The forum recently celebrated the completion of the project, which enabled young people to play a central role in improving their local area and engage with authority.
