Family Group Meetings are a way of helping families fiend their own solutions to difficulties, with the familiybeing placed at the heart of the decision making process.  Our priorities are to work with families where a child is looked after and accommodated; at risk of accommodation; where permanency planning is taking place; and where children have additional support needs.

Our Young Families Outreach service supports families who are vunerable or under stress.  We provide individual and family support that enables parents to gain confidence and improve relationships within the family and with their children.  We also offer direct support to children using play and art materials.  In most cases we meet with families in their own homes, but also work with children at school or in the community.  Our priorities are to work with families who have a child aged 0-5, or who have a child aged 0-8 where the child is on the child protection register or is looked after and accommodated.  We work closely with other agencies such as scoila work, health, schools and community organisations to achieve the best for children.

Bfriends provides support and freindship to children and young people aged 5-16 who are experiencing difficuties within the family and as a result are left feeling isolated and vunerable.  Trained volunteers befriend children and young people on a one-to-one basis and help to build children's confidence and self esteem, and open up opportunities for personal and social development
