Identifying and removing the root causes and barriers to individual sustainability and growth through community development.
This new area of work involves identifying the personal and household barriers individuals and families are facing; and removing these root causes through a range of various community focussed initiatives.
Initiatives are themed under health, income, education, employment and environment. Services are tailored to meet the needs of the community and to make the greatest difference to those housholders with the greatest need.
We currently work in 5 communities in Belfast, Lisburn, Newtownabbey & Derry/Londonderry; and aim to grow to work 5 more communities over the next 3 years.

Healthy Futures delivers programmes which promote low-cost healthy eating and the benefits of cooking with a low energy cooking appliance such as air fryer or slow cooker.
Through this, we facilitate the delivery of short-term courses and support to individuals and groups living on a low income with the aim of increasing their skills and knowledge around purchasing and preparing food on a limited budget whilst meeting nutritional needs.
Service users will learn about healthy food choices, safe food preparation, reducing food waste, shopping on a limited budget, cooking with low energy appliances (air fryer or slow cooker) and food storage. This will support individuals, parents etc to improve their overall health and financial outcomes on a short- and long-term basis.
