Anam Cara is holding its monthly Parent Evening on Wednesday March 2 from 19:30 to 21:00 in the Ballybane Enterprise Centre, Ballybane, Co Galway (weather dependent ). Anam Cara Services are available free of charge to all bereaved parents.
Anam Cara is an organisation that supports bereaved parents — Anam Cara support groups are situated throughout Ireland and provide parents a safe, comfortable environment where they have the opportunity to connect with other bereaved parents.
It is an inclusive organisation where parents do not identify themselves by their children’s age, how they died, or if their death was recent or many years ago. What Anam Cara provides is a safe place for bereaved parents to connect with others who understand the intensity of the grief and loss.
Although Anam Cara does not offer counselling, each group has a lending library and information on the other services available to parents and families in the local community.
