Due to the current lockdown, Focus on Family is mainly closed with only a small number of activities running and opening times greatly reduced.

We hope to re-open and re-start services as soon as we are allowed to by the NI Executive. 

In the meantime, If anyone needs any support, please email Brendan Patterson (Project Manager) via email to manager@focusonfamily.co.uk
