Parents Participation

Parents participation is a crucial part of the YAP Ireland model. We do this through local and national parents participation groups and events.

We meet on a weekly / fortnightly basis for tea and chats. We learn new things and do exciting activities such as flower arranging, meditation, arts and crafts, pottery, and much more, alongside knowledge sharing and supporting one another. 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.
