Our mission is to create a just society that has the utmost respect for all human life from fertilisation. We live this out by providing positive alternatives to abortion through support for women and families and education for young people. Thanks for being a part of this.
Welcome to our impact page. Here you can discover how Life is making a difference by providing positive alternatives to abortion.

Life launches perinatal unit in Northern Ireland
Life Northern Ireland is proud to announce the launch of a new perinatal service to support families with babies diagnosed with life limiting conditions.
The perinatal service is designed to complement NHS services, by offering specialised counselling and support to parents whose children have been diagnosed with conditions in the womb such as Anencephaly, Trisomy 13 and Trisomy 18. The service was launched in September as part of Life NI’s new befriending initiative which expands the Pregnancy Matters™ ongoing counselling and support services. A “befriender” is there to offer a listening ear, to help extend social networks, develop skills and confidence, and offer support with education and career opportunities.
Head of Life’s Pregnancy Matters Service™ Liz Lloyd said ““This service complements the already excellent services offered by our dedicated Pregnancy Matters™ team. Having so many professionals in the form of midwives, health visitors, social workers attending the launch was very encouraging. We are passionate about supporting people who are in need of our services.”
Thank you for taking the time to visit our impact page! We’re passionate about supporting women, children and families and are delighted to share with you how we’re making a difference. With your help, we are providing positive alternatives to abortion and changing lives one woman, one baby at a time.
