Psychological assessment/councelling/training has been provided over the last 8 years by Psychologists from both Ireland and the U.K. Approximately 400 children and young people have been assessed.Councelling services are presently available (Monday to Friday 7am - 4pm)

The Future

Like other provinces and districts of Brothers of Charity international,we have given a commitment to projects in developing countries. In the case of our province -we have offered assistance,both professional and financial,to Sri Lanka.Our present aim to have structures in place so that services are secured,staff are adequately trained, resourced and sufficiently self-reliant so that provision countinues.

Our Priorities are

To ensure that all provision is local,small in scale and community-led.

To involve parents,local communities,staff and statutory authorities in all service departments.

To negotiate financial costs of service provision with statutory agencies,families,staff and charitable foundations.

To develop services,which,once up and running and appropriately funded,could have their management transferred to parents associations or other local community groups.

To provide community-led services is our ultimate goal throughout the areas where we work in partnership with local people
