Infancy is a crucial time for brain development. It is vital that babies and their caregivers are supported during this time to promote attachment. With a good initial bond, children are more likely to grow up to become happy, independent and resilient adults. Here at Dunfanaghy FRC we have a lovely wee group starting up inhouse on Wed October the 6th. There are only 6 spaces for adults in the group so booking early via EMAIL is essential. Email dunfresource@gmail.com to express your interest and once your registration form has been returned your booking will be confirmed. #Dunfanaghy #familysupport #yoga #baby #First1000Days @the.dunfanaghy.workhouseDerryveagh Community Health Forum ...

It’s been a very long time, but fingers crossed The Derryveagh family carers group will get a chance to meet face to face outdoors in the Dunfanaghy Community Garden this coming Friday the 2nd July 2021 at 11.With many support services being closed over the past 15 months, family carers have been faced with many unprecedented challenges during Covid-19. Recent reports show that as many as 54% of family carers reported a decline in their mental health, while 40% reported a decline in physical health.This Friday morning we are preparing to come together with the #carers to relax in the community garden, have something to eat and for those who wish - perhaps plant a basket to take home. If you are a #family carer living or caring for someone in the #Derryveagh community please get in touch by phoning the centre to book your place. Ring 0830730714 and Bernie will give you all the information you need.Pobail Le Chéile Derryveagh Community Health Forum Dunfanaghy Dunfanaghy & Portnablagh Creeslough Gortahork Buy And Sell Mabs Derrybeg ...
