The Strengthening Families Programme (SFP) is an evidence-based 14-week family skills training programme that involves the parents and teens/children in three classes run on the same night once a week. Families enjoy a meal on arrival, then parents and teens /children engage in separate skills based sessions for 1 hour. This is followed by a family skills session in the second hour, where skills are practiced with parents and teens/children. This is run each September in the Dublin 12 area. Referrals taken from March-June. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Turning Down the Volume is a unique short animation film that was developed in collaboration by two Local Drug and Alcohol Task Forces, Dublin 12, and the Canal Communities. It was developed to highlight the increase in the availability of alcohol in two neighbouring areas of Dublin, and to raise awareness of the link between the availability of alcohol and alcohol-related harm.
