Armagh Centre

Covering Armagh, Banbridge, Newry & Mourne, Portadown, Lurgan, Moira, Kilkeel, Dungannon & Moy area.

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.

My background is in community development and I have over 20 years coordinating and managing various projects including involving refugee resettlement, domestic abuse, and support to voluntary sector organisations. I have Masters degree in International Development and a keen interest in supporting communities and individuals affected by conflict and inequality.

They continue to build on their wealth of experience and expertise with ongoing trauma specific training. They take a person-centred approach, putting the individual with trauma at the core of their work.
