We hope this website will be a valuable resource for people living and working in Finglas, providing information about services for children and families in the area. It may also prove valuable to people from outside the area who wish to avail of services within the Finglas area. It will also serve as a useful tool to policy makers as a guide to identifying gaps in service provision.
Over time, the directory will keep growing to include as many services as possible. We hope that by listing these services in one place, we can help to identify gaps where there may be a need for new services, or to develop new responses and lobby for additional resources.
While great effort went into making this directory easily accessible and including as many organisations as possible, there is always space for improvement. We would welcome any suggestions people may have to improve the directory. Please email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This website was originally developed by the 16+Task Force as an access point to all the agencies providing supports and contacts for young people in the Finglas & Cabra area. Thanks to the support of the Finglas Children and Family Support Network, it has been expanded and now includes additional services for children and families in the Finglas area.
In due course a hard copy of this directory will be available.
The Children and Family Support Network aims to respond to the needs of all children up to the age of 18, along with their families, in the Finglas area. This website is the first of many planned initiatives to achieve this goal.
