Our Resources & Stories

Our Stories

We believe that every child should be loved and cared for. Our unique approach is to intervene as soon as problems are identified and work with the child for as long as it takes to put things right.

We feel it is important to share our stories which in turn may help other families in similar situations. In all cases, we have the agreement of the families we have worked with to include their stories on our website; names have been changed to provide anonymity.

The cases outlined reflect the dedication and commitment of our Social Workers and Counsellors and also underline the great need for the service that they provide.

If you would like to talk to us about anything you have read here, please contact Catherine Munns who will be happy to help.
