The MACS Team

We provide a range of support services for children and young people aged 11-25 years who haven’t had a fair deal.

They may be experiencing a range of issues including:

  • homelessness or at risk of homelessness
  • substance abuse
  • mental health difficulties
  • anti-social behaviour
  • leaving care
  • self-harm and/or suicidal thoughts
  • marginalised and at risk

Our core services include:

We work in the areas of highest deprivation across Greater Belfast, Lisburn, Downpatrick, Newry and the County Down area.

Many of the young people we support have become stuck and are engaged in negative patterns of thinking and behaviour that prevent them from fulfilling their potential and leading the lives that they want to lead. Our main role is to help them through this period so that they can move on and achieve their goals.
