Celebrity couple Daniel and Majella O’Donnell are set to lend a helping hand in launching a new directory for community Services in North West Donegal – the first of its kind in the area.

The directory is created by the The North West Child and Family Support Network to provide a new level of access to local service information for both members of the public and practitioners. 

The Directory covers the North West of Donegal – Derryveagh (from Creeslough to Gortahork); Bunbeg and Derrybeg and the Fintown and Rosses area.

The Directory covers a wide range of key service categories from preschools to supports for older people. It includes information about HSE services, An Garda Síochána, Schools, Churches, financial supports as well local community organisations and centres such as Men’s and Women’s Groups and walking groups. Counselling Services, Social Prescribing, Family and Youth Support are also referenced in addition to information on Cancer Support services, Autism Support, Addiction Support and Support for Carers.

The directory will be officially launched by Daniel and Majella O’Donnell at a digital event on the 11th of November. Other speakers will include, Dr Aisling Gillen, Regional Services Director for Tusla West who has been one of the main drivers in the development of Child and Family Support Networks across Ireland.

It is hoped that hard copies of the Directory will be available through Health Centres and other Community buildings in the coming months. In the meantime virtual copies of the Directory can be downloaded from www.donegalchn.orgww.parenthubdonegal.ie,www.dldc.organdwww.cypsc.ie Donegal page.
