About Families Moving On
Families Moving On established in 2009 for the benefit of the inhabitants of Omagh and the surrounding environs of Co. Tyrone. The group is an interdenominational victims and survivors group set up to support those affected through terrorist related incidents in which members do not avail of duplicate services from other funded groups. Members may suffer as a result of bereavement, injury or through traumatisation by witnessing any incidents in the area. Members can be carer's of those injured or traumatised.
FMO strive on the varied membership it has which includes all age groups, religious denominations and affiliations, gender, marital status, educational and economical status. Members have a universal and collective aim of moving on with their lives by enhancing their social life, health and wellbeing, career opportunities by providing essential skills and ensuring our young people have a plat form to achieve to their upmost abilities.
At FMO, we feel we are a unique group in terms of our varied membership, previous experience in the Victims/Survivors Sector (i.e. management committee are aware of real needs, experience in management structures & systems etc and ensuring needs are met and resources used in effectively)and our universal desire to move on, leaving past pain behind. FMO aim to provide a safe place where victims and survivors can avail of services appropriate to them and relevant to their needs in order to help alleviate their personal stress caused though terrorist related activities. We aim to be aware of the changing needs of members and to ensure members take decisions based on information and choices available locally regarding educational, training, volunteering, practical and recreational opportunities.
