Supporting Parents & Children

Space is the lead organisation for the Newry and Mourne Family Support Hub (FSH) where we work in partnership with statutory and voluntary organisations to identify solutions for families facing challenges.

Support services available to families in the local area.


Referrals to the Family Support Hub include requests for support around physical and mental health problems, family breakdown, parenting difficulties, financial problems and social and rural isolation. In addition to the FSH coordination, we also undertake in-depth home based assessments to explore needs and maximise access to services benefits and grants.
