Family Support

Carers Association

The Carers Association is Ireland's national voluntary organisation for and of family carers in the home. Family carers provide high levels of care to a range of people including frail older people, people with severe disabilities, the terminally ill and children with special needs.


Gingerbread provides accurate, confidential and informed advice and information on all issues affecting one parent families. They do this through Support Groups, which may or may not be attached to Branches, and who are made of other lone parents. They provide adult peer support and also, through regular outings, holidays and parties, help families go forward from their present position.

One Family

One Family offer support, information and services to all members of all one-parent families, to those experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and to those working with one-parent families.

Parent Line

For over twenty years, Parentline has provided a completely confidential helpline for parents and guardians. Parents phone Parentline with all sorts of problems. There is no typical call. Calls come from parents of new born babies, toddlers, pre-teens and teenagers - children of all ages. All ages offer different challenges.
