Colin Early Intervention Neighbourhood

The area of Colin was the largest deprived area in Northern Ireland - 42% of 16-19 years olds there had no educational qualifications and 43% of 3-5 year olds had speech and language difficulties.

Between March 2010 and July 2011 there were 21 deaths by suicide in the area ranging in age from 11 to 51. In response, Annie Armstrong and her team decided to set up a partnership of all the organisations in the area to target issues using an early intervention approach.
