Support

We run monthly support group meetings on a casual, drop in format where all are welcome to pop in. Meetings alternate between morning and evening meetings.

 RETURN OF Evening Support Group Meetings

We have been asked by a number of people to hold some evening support group meetings again.  The first of these will be held in the Drogheda ABACAS School in Congress Avenue, Drogheda on Thursday the 21st September @ 8.00pm.

There will be a discussion particularly about New Diagnosis and Benefits and Entitlements as well as the usual chat.  It would really benefit the newer parents if some of the parents of older children could come along to share their experience.

Please note all are welcome – this is not just for parents of children attending Drogheda ABACAS, we just use the premises FOC.  

Further Support Group Meeting Dates are :

Thursday 19th October @ 10.30 am in the Bagel Bar, Laurence Centre, Drogheda – Morning Meeting

Thursday 23rd November @ 8.00pm – Drogheda ABACAS School Hall – Evening Meeting

Thursday 14th December – 10.30am – Christmas Support Group Coffee Morning – Sage and Stone, Duleek.
