Armagh delivers a comprehensive package of support services to victims/survivors and their families across a wide geographical area covering Armagh, Banbridge, Newry & Mourne, Portadown, Lurgan, Moira, Kilkeel, Dungannon & Moy area.

All services are offered on a cross community basis in keeping with the ethos of the organisation.

Our staff provide a continuum of trauma intervention services in relation to individual need, including Outreach Support Services, Counselling, Complementary Therapies, Welfare Advice/ Advocacy, Peer Support, creative, therapeutic and Personal development courses and a range of accredited Trauma Training courses.

Many of the families we work with have remained under the radar for years, suffering with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, prolonged grief, social isolation, chronic pain due to physical injury, mental health problems, loss of earnings and intimidation which is still widespread in some parts of NI.
