ABC Community Support Helpline

Armagh City Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council is here to work for you, to improve lives and revitalise and support communities.

Through this pilot initiative our aim is to provide information, support and signposting in relation to volunteering, employability, training, health and wellbeing, advice services and food support. You can call us, leave a message, email us or submit an enquiry form. We aim to respond to your query in 48hrs. The Helpline will operate normal working hours Monday – Friday 9am-5pm.

The Community Development Department is committed to making a difference to the lives of people in our Borough, working alongside our partner agencies to increase life opportunities to support everyone to fulfil their potential.

Are you interested in helping others and becoming involved in community activity, our support team may be able to help direct you to volunteering opportunities within the Armagh Banbridge Craigavon Borough.

Training & Employability

We are working alongside our partner agencies to provide programmes and training which will assist you to learn new skills, prepare a cv, gain  support with job applications and better prepare for job interviews.

Health and Well Being

Given the increased importance of taking care of our mental and physical health we aim to provide a range of information on programmes and opportunities which will support your physical and mental resilience.

Advice Services

Through our partner agency we will offer advice information, advocacy and representation on areas such as debt, housing, benefits and welfare changes.

Food Support

In collaboration with our partners we will be able to provide information on food support to individuals and families who are in need.

Crisis Support

Christmas can be a very difficult time of year for many people and families due to added financial pressures.  The expense of gifts and food, the pressure of shopping and the expectations of the season can make this an extremely stressful time.

Support is available for anyone experiencing crisis.  Don’t suffer in silence.  Please ask for help if you or your family are struggling.  Contact details are available here:
