Welcome to F.A.C.T. 2009

F.A.C.T. - Our Beginning
Families Against Crime by Terrorims was formed in October 1998. A group of ‘victims’ were invited to meet the then Secretary of State Dr Mo Mowlam.

Our name was changed to Families Achieving Change Together on the 6th of August 2003, this reflects how we as a group and as victims have grown and changed.

A Bereaved Family

After this meeting the victims and their families felt that they as individuals had a bond, which brought them together. Maybe through that togetherness they could help each other to overcome or at least come to terms with the hurt that had been instrumental in labelling them the ‘innocent victims of the Northern Ireland Troubles’

  • Over 4,243 people have lost their lives in the conflict

  • The F.A.C.T. group was formed and have received funding from The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland, for office premises and salary costs for one worker
    Our office was officially opened by Rt Hon Adam Ingram MP JP on the 26 October 1999

  • Most of the group members have been maimed by terrorist violence or have had a relative murdered

  • We are an organisation with families from both communities as members

  • To date we are working with the members to offer counselling, re-training, social and welfare activities, advice, support and complimentary therapies

  • We are also trying to create awareness in the local community of the pain and suffering that has been forced onto these individuals. We hope that the community would help to offer support which itself would enable our members to grow in confidence and reconcile to a community that has brought our members to this place of pain.
