Extern speaks up for and supports more than 25,000 children, young people, individuals and families each year.  Through our work we enable them to overcome their challenges, empower positive change and support family unity. 

As a leading social justice charity across the island of Ireland,  Extern has more than 80 individual projects, operating from over 40 locations in 27 counties.

Some of our projects are self-referral, meaning people can refer themselves, while others operate on the basis of referrals from a range of partners and statutory organisations.
