NEWTOWNABBEY Councillor Lynn Frazer has welcomed the introduction of a new support group for teenage girls in the district called ‘Choices’.
The sexual health advice service operates out of Whiteabbey Hospital on a part-time basis.
Councillor Frazer stated: “I welcome the establishment of ‘Choices’ to Newtownabbey. It is a good idea and deserves support, and I congratulate the Local Services Partnership for backing the project.
“‘Choices’ now also works in Ballyclare, and I would hope that eventually the service will be able to work in both areas on a more full-time basis.
“Teenage girls often face very difficult decision very early in life, and ‘Choices’ is there to help them.”
