We highlight the work of a local family support group.
The Carmona SJOG Parent Forum
The Carmona SJOG Parent Forum was set up to support the parents, family and friends of children and adults attending St John of Gods Carmona Services in south Dublin.
Carmona Services provides a range of day and residential services and supports for children and adults with an intellectual disability.
The Carmona SJOG Parent Forum provides carers (parents/family/friends) an opportunity to meet and discuss issues concerning their loved ones in a caring, secure and supportive environment; to exchange information; to educate; and to raise issues with the Service Provider (Programme Manager of Adult Services and the Programme Manager of Respite) who meet with the Parent Forum Reps following each Parent Forum session.
The Carmona SJOG Parent Forum meets every quarter, notice of meetings is sent to all members of the Carmona community by the Secretary in St. John of Gods.
The Parent Forum can be contacted through St. John of God Carmona Services.
