Cross Border Charity Warns About Impact Of Brexit On Vulnerable People

An all island charity is warning of the disastrous impacts Brexit will have on families and young people in need of cross-border supports.

Extern helps over 20,000 people suffering family breakdowns, homelessness and mental health issues - 3,000 of whom are cared for at its respite centres in Kildare, Fermanagh and Down.
Since Brexit was announced, it says there's been no credible plan from the British or Irish governments about how to help some of the islands most vulnerable adults and young people.
