Extern works alongside children, young people, and families facing challenges to empower positive change and support family unity. They support people who are homeless or facing homelessness, those dealing with mental health issues and the impact of suicide, people experiencing problem drug and alcohol use and people living with problem gambling. They also support refugees, the Traveller community and people living with an offending past, to change their lives.
The MAC has been partnering with Extern to support them in their work and the people they work with by using the power of creative activities, community, and art.
Meeting weekly at the MAC, craft workshops are steered by the participants who create art using their own lived experiences as inspiration.
