YAP Parents Participation Groups

Join Our Parents Group!

Parents participation is a crucial part of the YAP Ireland model. We meet on a weekly / fortnightly basis for tea, chats and knowledge sharing. If you wish to join one of our parents groups and your children or children in your care access the YAP programme then get in touch with your advocate or team leader and come along and try out something new! Here's what
our current parents and advocates had to say about Parents Participation! A very special thanks to our North Dublin Parents Group and Advocates who contributed to our Parents Participation Video.

The Parents Forum - April 2019

On April 4th YAP Ireland hosted our first ever #ParentForum bringing together parents from all over the country whose children or children in their care have accessed the YAP Service. Hosted by YAP mangers Cathrena, Aine and Trish a fantastic day of learning, fun and laughter was had. A special thanks to the full house of parents, carers and advocates who all participated in a discussion on change for both their local communities and change within our YAP community. Due to the success of our Dublin parents group, next week will see the start of our Kildare parents group and we hope to spread these participation morning out across the country. Parents and carers are key to the success of the YAP model and we are so proud of how this group has grown and supported its members over the years. #TogetherWeAreBetter
