The Children’s Grief Centre received €10,000 this year through the Department of Children and Youth Affairs under the What Works Network Support Fund to specifically support the work of the Children’s Grief Centre.
The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone TD has launched What Works, a Department of Children and Youth Affairs initiative which aims to maximise the impact of prevention and early intervention to improve the lives of children and young people. What Works will ensure that key groups working with children, young people and their families know what works, how it works, and it will provide an evidence supported approach to apply to this work.
Helen Culhane, CGC Director, attended the Department of Children and Youth Affaris #WhatWorks launch which aims to improve the lives of children and young people through prevention and early intervention.
Speaking at the launch, Minister Zappone said “What Works is a co-ordinated effort to support a whole system approach to prevention and early intervention in Ireland. We know that investment in this area can have a genuinely positive effect on the whole life of the child, reducing their need to avail of services at later stages in their lives.”
