Northern Ireland

​Barnardo’s has been delivering The PATHS® Programme for Schools (UK Version) for over a decade.

Between 2008-2012, 12 schools across the Craigavon and Lurgan areas took part in a Randomised Controlled Trial of the PATHS® programme. A further 30 schools implemented the programme in Greater Belfast from 2013 and the programme has grown from strength to strength across Northern Ireland since then. In 2018 we completed a 4-year implementation of the programme in 40 schools across the West of Northern Ireland (Enniskillen, Omagh, Strabane, Derry/Londonderry and Limavady), and have worked with over 50 schools since then.

“It is very clear the impact of the PATHS® programme. The PATHS® programme is evidently developing in our children: respect; own rules for sport/play; kindness; playing fair; social justice and teamwork skills. It is developing skills for 21st Century adults! This is a cutting edge programme - part of PDMU.”
