first_imgThe Parent Hub Donegal, a multi-agency working group of the Donegal Children and Young People’s Services Committee (CYPSC) have launched their website. The website, launched recently in the Mount Errigal Hotel, has been a key focus of the work of the Parent Hub since their inception in 2013. From the outset the group recognized that there are a vast number of supportive services throughout the county of Donegal but often the extent of available support is not known.In order to increase access to information to parents and families it was agreed that a one stop shop for parents was the way forward. The ParenthubDonegal Website aims to be that one stop shop. The Website is a source of information and advice for families, connecting families to services and events across Donegal.There are currently 240 services up on the site ranging from Ante Natal Services, Breast Feeding Support, Dental Services, Public Health Nursing, Family Resource Centres, Counselling, Youth Services, Family Support Services, Social Work Services to name but a few.It is hoped to continue to build on the current information to include all community and statutory supports that a child and their family may need to access over the course of their childhood and on into adulthood.Parent Hub members at the launch.Over the years to come the group hope that no parent in Donegal should feel isolated.
