Focus on Family

Focus on Family

Operating for over 19 years in an area of high deprivation, Focus on Family is the first nurturing & development centre in Ireland. Our aim is to provide support to a diverse cross-section of our local population by developing relationships and engaging people in activities that meet their ongoing, changing needs. We provide a range of family and community support programmes including childcare, nurturing, domestic abuse, skills-courses, therapies and community events. We also work extensively within local partnerships and collaborations and are the lead agency in several formal and informal ventures, working on joined-up service-delivery, enhanced collaborative processes and development of new methods of engendering positive change within the area, including the growth of local social enterprise potential. We work within the immediate Ballysally & Millburn housing estate areas but our members and work reach out far further into the wider Causeway Coast & Glens area.
