Speaking on these recent developments, Chair Mr Jim Dixon stated " The Ely Centre express our gratitiude to the Victims and Survivors Service and the Armed Forices Covenant Trust for funding this project. I am so delighted that our pilot project last year within the South Armagh area is now beginning to make inroads in this area. An area which has many residents who have suffered as a result of the Troubles or as result of Armed Service in other conflict Zones. We want to provide the best possible support to our Victims and Veterans and the Board are excited by the potential of the new Co Armagh team and the postive impact that can have on the lives of those we seek to help  I encourage all who require Health and Well BeIng and Welfare Support to get in touch with the team and make use of the support that is available for them"
