Family Support Services

What is family support?

Parenting can be a difficult job at every stage of child rearing. We aim to support all those involved in parenting who may need advice, guidance or who just need a chat.
Áiseanna na hÓige with support from TUSLA provide a free, one-to one, private and confidential service which can be provided through English or Irish. Supports can be provided through the MEITHEAL framework which is a way of working with children and their families to identify and respond to their strengths and needs in a timely way. Examples of the challenges Meitheal could help with are:

  • A child having problems at school
  • A child feeling down
  • Not getting on with your child
  • Family Problems
  • Illness or bereavement
  • Difficult behaviour
  • Relationship with your child
For more information on Meitheal and how it works - Visit the TUSLA website.

What we offer in Áiseanna na hÓige:

  • Family Support on a 1:1 basis where we can assist you to access other services for you or your children, such as play therapy, counselling and other services. If you or someone you know would like some support- contact our family support department. Our friendly and supportive Family Support Worker Details are listed at the bottom of this page.

  • Rainbows Programme:  Rainbow offers listening and group support for children following bereavement. Keep an eye on our upcoming events page for details of when courses run or contact the family support services department.
