Achieving Better Change For Families
in Northern Ireland
About our Organization
Achieving Better Change For Families is a child-focused programme. We value children and their wellbeing and want to ensure children can maintain relationships with their fathers, that are safe, healthy and free from fear.
At Achieving Better Change For Families we want to see an end to Domestic Abuse and abusive fathering. We believe that children deserve to be protected and nurtured within a family unit that places their needs first.
We want to empower and equip fathers to realise the importance of their part in their children’s lives, and in doing so achieve better change in their parenting by addressing abusive behaviours and patterns and repairing relationships within their family.
Achieving Better Change For Families will work in partnership with all other relevant agencies, sharing relevant information and adhering to Child Protection and safeguarding responsibilities.
