About Us

SPACE NI is a charity and social enterprise providing services and support to help people reach their full potential.


SPACE NI is a person centric, not for profit organisation with offices in Newry and Kilkeel, that works alongside individuals, families and communities to support improved access to service, support and wellbeing.  We are registered as a charity with the Charity Commission of Northern Ireland NIC105005.  We are also a company limited by guarantee registered in Companies House, NI655061.

SPACE NI began life as South Down Family Health Initiative and has grown from a small campaigning organisation in Warrenpoint, to a key third sector agency providing services, support, training and leadership on community development, resilience and wellbeing.

Whilst SPACE NI services are firmly rooted within the Southern Trust geographical boundaries, our corporate and resilience training programmes and Acorn candles are sold and delivered throughout the whole island of Ireland and beyond.

SPACE NI is focused on delivering across the following big themes over the next five years;

  • Disability
  • Poverty
  • Inclusion
  • Resilience
  • Inequality

SPACE NI staff and programmes will use a strength-based approach, building resilience and linking and connecting individuals and communities to create improved connections and better outcomes for all.
