Meet our youth team   Our part-time service is led by Michelle McGrath, a qualified counsellor, who has been trained in HD and has worked with children in schools as well as with children and young adults in her counselling practice in Bangor. Michelle works with our youth committee Chloe, Ashley, Saoirse and Laura whose role includes helping to plan our work, assist with fundraising and act as mentors to other children and young people impacted by HD. Our 2018 youth events are funded by a grant from Cash for Kids and our youth worker role is made possible by the fantastic fundraising efforts of the Heatrick, McCartney and Hawthorne extended families in Armagh.
