Type of support for people
At Action for Children our priorities are to continue to support our children, young people and families across Northern Ireland, find innovative ways to deliver services, and reach families who are experiencing challenges now as a result of COVID-19. Our family support, supported accommodation, floating support, services and family support hubs are operating as usual and where buildings are closed, we are reaching our service users through the use of technology, social media and collaboration with community partners.
We’re here for children, young people and families in Northern Ireland.
Our vision is that every child and young person in the country has a safe and happy childhood and the foundations they need to thrive.
We make sure children get the best start in life. We step in to keep them safe, and support young people who are having a difficult time. We also support families who need a bit of extra help.
We do this because life for some of the children we meet is hard. Some don’t have the basics, like the love and care of a family or a safe place to call home. Others are struggling with their mental health, face physical challenges or don’t have the support they need to become healthy, happy adults. These problems can have a devastating impact on their lives.
