If you or someone you know is in danger of suicide, please seek help immediately. You should:

  • Call 999;
  • Call Lifeline on 0808 808 8000;
  • Use your local emergency department.

Don’t try to manage your or someone else’s suicidal thoughts on your own. Remember, thoughts about suicide are just that – thoughts. They won’t last forever and often they pass quickly. Many people who have had serious thoughts about suicide have said that they feel completely different only hours later.

Young Carers Project (Armagh/Dungannon/Craigavon/Banbridge)


028 4062 6516
(Belfast Head Office) 028 9046 0500

Each child and young person referred to the project is allocated a Key Worker who will undertake an assessment of their particular needs.  In response to this a package of support will be developed.  The support offered will be different for each child.

All young people who engage with the project are offered outings and activities, at a frequency dictated by their particular needs.  These activities enable the young person to have “time out” from their caring role and an opportunity for peer support.  For some of the activities the main focus so on having fun (e.g. laser quest, quad biking, cinema, ice hockey matches, concerts etc).  However many of the activities offered also have a personal development element and aim to encourage the development of self esteem, confidence, resilience and coping skills.  These activities include abseiling, caving, dance & drama and arts based activities such as digital photography, film making etc.
