Dóchas Family Centre (North Clondalkin Integrated Family/School Project CLG) is an independent organisation (No: 200489) and registered charity (CHY: 11976) based in Clondalkin. We are a strengths based project committed to supporting children aged 7-12 years who may have social, emotional or behavioural needs. We provide confidential therapeutic interventions, one to one and group support which is community based and accessible in order to strengthen the family unit. Dóchas has been providing support to families since 1995 and is committed to working with children and families in the medium-long term to tackle a range of familial issues.
Dóchas staff are creative, highly qualified, committed, Garda vetted and professional with a diverse range of skills & experience. We provide a service which empowers and enables children & families set and achieve their goals. We assess each family using the ‘My World Triangle’ and ‘Resilience & Vulnerability’ frameworks. We transition children into youth services when appropriate.
Dóchas works in partnership with North Clondalkin families, external agencies e.g. Schools, Child & Family Agency (Tusla) and other local organisations. We work to Child Safeguarding principles and key staff are ‘mandated’ in this respect.
