​​​​​NICHAW (pronounced 'ni-chaw',  NI rhyming with eye)  is a new multi-disciplinary, solutions-orientated research and training agency with a vision of 'health and well-being for all'.Towards this vision,  we work collaboratively with statutory and non-statutory partners to understand health and well-being challenges, and find community solutions that are timely, feasible, effective and evidence based.

Additionally, we contribute health and well-being training courses, workshops, 1-1 supports and research evaluations relevant for individuals and groups at all stages and ages, including later life.



The support I got was just fantastic.  I am not "there" yet, but I know now what to do and can keep going myself.  Thank you all so much. 

- Mags, Armagh
