At MACS we are dedicated to helping children & young people aged 11 - 25 who have not had a fair deal - find out how MACS can help you!

Our vision is ‘Life is gr8 for young people’ and we provide a range of support services for children & young people aged 11-25 years who have not had a fair deal. We believe that young people should make their own choices, risk mistakes and participate. Our aims are ‘Strength Excellence and Vision’, ‘Getting you to where you want to be’ and ‘Led by You’.   MACS core services are Supported Housing, Wellbeing Support Service, Volunteers Inspiring People (V.I.P.) and Floating Support.

MACS Supporting Children & Young People works with people aged 11-25 who are:

  • Experiencing mental health difficulties
  • Misusing substances
  • Engaged in anti-social behaviour
  • Care experienced or have social services involvement
  • Homeless or at risk of homelessness
  • Who self harm and/or are suicidal and who are marginalised and at risk.

We work across the highest areas of deprivation within the Belfast, Lisburn and Co.Down areas. The young people we support often have become stuck and are engaged in negative patterns of thinking and behaviour that prevent them from fulfilling their potential and leading the lives that they want to lead. Our main role is to help them through this period so that they can move on and achieve the goals that they have set for themselves.
