The Kilmacrennan Families group was established following on from a Pamper the Parents morning in the area in October last year having received a small pot of funding through Tusla. In addition to setting up a Parent and Toddler group in the area the group have also established a Facebook page to share information with parents and families in the area.
At the initial Pamper the Parents morning parents in the area were asked to identify areas which they might need information and support with. Based on this information a number of evening talks are being organised in the local Community Hall. The initial talk is scheduled for the evening of the 13th February and is addressing the topic of internet safety including gaming, etc. The talk is aimed at parents of primary school age children and secondary school aged children. While the talk is being hosted by the Kilmacrennan families group it is free for any parent to attend. We are very aware of the challenges faced by parents in this area.
