Main Services Provided

Extern supports children, young people and their families and carers through a range of projects across Northern Ireland.
We deliver services to children and young people who are at risk of entering care, secure care or custody.
Our interventions are based on a ‘whole family’ approach which recognises and builds upon the families existing strengths and supports the development of new skills and coping strategies for coping at times of challenge and change in their lives.
Through our work we aim to:
• Support families to succeed and stay together;
• Keep children safe and reduce offending rates;
• Improve school attendance rates and access to education or employment opportunities;
• Develop and improve emotional wellbeing;
• Increase parental capacity; and
• Increase community involvement and social inclusion.
