We offer a service to

How to refer
Contact Ms Cathy Steenson at 01 4971519 or email: [email protected]
Families who meet the criteria will be invited to visit the Early Years Service to meet staff and get an overview of the service. If they wish to progress the referral, they are given an application pack. On receipt of the completed pack, the manager will decide if the family are suitable for the service. Families who are referred through Meitheal will be prioritised.
