Over the past 3 years, the Katherine Howard Foundation, under the Parenting Support Initiative, has provided financial support to our Childcare Facility to support parents of the under 3s in their parenting role. It has enable us to implement parenting courses and one-to-one interventions with this group.
This initiative has now come to an end and Elaine and Teresa attended a networking event in Dublin recently to mark its end. An independent review, which was carried out on the work of the 16 groups initially awarded this financial aid, was presented by facilitator, Marie Carroll at this event and we had the opportunity to meet with our colleagues in the other groups.
We wish to thank the team in the Katherine Howard Foundation for their support and encouragement over the past 3 years and the Community Foundation for Ireland for their collaboration in this project.
