Our Family Support service is a community based programme offering a wide range of activities that aim to strengthen informal social networks in the Dundrum area.
The focus of these services is to provide early intervention which aims to promote and protect the health and well-being of all children, young people, their families and the vulnerable or at risk within our community.
Our Family Support Worker provides crucial support to individuals and families who need help with life's stresses, such as bereavement, depression, redundancy, marital separation, illness, abuse, and financial problems.
These issues can contribute to the stress of family relationships and can be assessed and dealt with by providing the appropriate supports, such as peer groups.
These groups provide adults, teenagers and children with the opportunity to support each other by means of sharing their stories and experiences with one another.
We need you help with continuing to provide much needed food parcels to the vulnerable families in the Dundrum area. Items needed:
- Shopping bags
- Canned food
- Tea and coffee
- Fruit and veg.
- Pasta and sauces
- Biscuits, crackers and kids treats
We are running a Befriending Telephone Service for the vunerable and elderly with the assistance of an Garda Siochana. Anyone in need of assistance with appointments or shopping please phone 087-692-7361 or email: email@example.com .
Meals are being delivered weekly to families, elderly and vulnerable in the community. If you wish to avail or you know someone who is in need of a delivery / collection please call 087-692-7361.
Children and adult activity packs can be posted or collected. Please call us for more information.
Grandparent Pen Pal Kit
We know how important grandparents are and how much it matters to stay in touch with your grandchildren. As a response to social distancing challenges we have put together a pen pal kit to help maintain that special bond. Please contact us to get your kit.
Mary Pierce, Well-being Therapist is offering online support to parents & teenagers who are struggling during this pandemic.
