Daughters of Charity Case Study
23 May 2012 |
An interagency approach is key in the work that we do in the Bringing It All Back Home Project. As we are at the referral stage of this project we have met with and gained support from the many other agencies in the area. The Staff Team have been introduced to other services and have visited agencies in order to start the process of referring.
A Monitoring Group and Steering Committee support the work that we do and the Daughters of Charity are the lead agency. It was felt that the age category of birth to four years of age was missing support in the community both for the children and the parents and so it was decided to work with this particular age group. We aim to work with families who are experiencing isolation due to many factors including poverty and addiction.
Staffs on the project are receiving training in Parenting and Marte Meo and places on these training courses are being offered to other service providers in the area. It is hoped that the benefit of this extra training will benefit families and services in the community as a whole. Five Children’s centres have accepted places on the Marte Meo training which will explore attachment and child development and help parents strengthen parent child relationships. Further training in parenting will also be offered to the BIABH team and the six children’s projects in the community.
