About Us

Kineara was founded in 2012 with the aim of supporting individuals, families and communities to lead happier, healthier lives.

Who We Are

At Kineara we believe that healthy relationships can help us get through tough times.

There are many things that can create stress in our lives and makes us feel overwhelmed – jobs, money, housing, health, finances and the wellbeing of our loved ones – all those things can sometimes get on top of us, especially if we’re feeling isolated from those around us.

At those times, it is important to have a helping hand. That is where Kineara comes in.

Founded in 2012 and inspired by the ethos of the Family Intervention Project, we build on people’s strengths to create tailored support that suits the different needs of each household we work with.

Each programme we deliver is flexible and integrated, so we can adapt our work to address the multi-complex needs of each household – from rent arrears, to unemployment or mental health issues – however they might have arisen in people’s lives.

'It has been a real privilege to lead and shape Kineara.

We knew we had a lot to offer when we started in 2012 but seeing how the people we work with have offered us the opportunity to support them to change their lives has really been incredible.

Using the ethos of the Family Intervention Project, which works with families facing real difficulties and hardships, we have been able to develop tailored support services and short intensive interventions that help families and individuals get on top of their problems before they escalate.

A lot of the people we work with just don’t know where to turn and feel isolated and in despair, but with a little support and working in partnership with families and individuals, together we help turn things around.

There’s no better feeling than helping somebody recognise their own strengths and to hear someone say 'I’m glad you came.'
