Who We Are

Unlock Potential - Shaping Futures

At Equipping for Life (EfL) we believe that when children feel valued and supported their potentials are unlocked and their futures shaped for good.

We are a Belfast faith-based charity, established in 2018, and we seek to offer people of Christian faith volunteering opportunities to support children in local primary schools. We prioritise working in areas which have, and continue to experience, generational disadvantage.

Inspire Initiative

We work in partnership with the schools to provide various programmes including reading and mentoring, tennis coaching, and our new initiative – Inspire.

From humble beginnings, working with a few schools on the Shankill Road, we have grown to working with over 20 primary schools across Northern Ireland. Our volunteers work with about 350 pupils on a weekly basis. New schools are being added on a regular basis and our volunteer team is growing rapidly.

If would like to support us then you could consider volunteering, praying or giving.
