We have worked in partnership with other local support services such as the local food bank, social services, suicide prevention charities, and other specialised organisations to address the needs of local people.

Our provision is user led and outcomes based, we seek to involve our service users in the decision making, to ensure we are providing the programmes they want to avail of. This enables us to keep abreast of current issues that need to be tackled and can prevent an escalation of problems.

All our programmes and services are conducted on a cross community and multi-cultural basis, providing an opportunity for all members of the community to come together.
