Working in partnership with Ulster Rugby

One in four people experience a mental health problem in any one year.

That’s someone in every family, workplace and friendship circle. In the UK it's around 14 million people.

That's why we are working in partnership with Ulster, to bring communities together to improve mental wellbeing.

Extern already supports thousands of children and families across Ireland but sadly, right now, lots more children need our help.

Our referrals are increasing, and many more young people are waiting for a respite break and our ongoing support.  

Please help us keep children safe from harm. Ensure they have access to a Safe Haven where they can leave their worries behind and have the chance to be children once more.  

Funds raised by the appeal will go towards equipping the sites with much-needed equipment and materials to support the young people during their stays. This will allow for life and social skills development and provide young people with opportunities for experiential learning.
