We are Family Friendly
As well as a great education system, we have a range of healthcare services available; being part of the UK ensures that residents in Northern Ireland have access to the National Health Service. This service provides free healthcare to all British and EU citizens. Registering with a local doctor is simple as long as you bring your European Health Insurance Card. As well as the free services offered by the National Health Service, we also have excellent standards of private healthcare in Belfast and across Northern Ireland.
Fitting in and getting set up in Northern Ireland is easy and with less commuting plus a better work-life balance means you get to spend more time with your family. Northern Ireland is the perfect place to bring up children. There are wonderful opportunities for young people to grow up with easy access to sports and outdoors, space and freedom: to ride horses, to run along open beaches, to swim in clean water, to walk through forests, climb mountains and to truly experience the beauty of nature. Our wide open spaces provide the choice of every style of living you and your family could want - from suburban homes with room for kids to run around in, to places by the seaside or even a spot out in the country. There is a wide range of housing options in Northern Ireland in terms of style, quality and price depending on location.
Families in Northern Ireland get great support from a range of public services. They include access to welfare and support if someone has an accident or if either parent can’t work because of sickness or unemployment. Many employers offer family friendly benefits such as flexi-time, childcare vouchers, maternity and paternity leave, some employers also provide the option of working from home.
