We encourage families and friends to become involved and we support them as much as possible in various ways including our respite services. Our regional council includes representatives of parents and families. We are also very open to friends and advocates of service users.
We particularly like to work with parents as partners when it comes to children. We also check with them about their needs for training and information and so on. From time to time, our Early Childhood Services run workshops where families can get together and get advice from national and international specialists and experts, share ideas, and generally network and support one another.
Some families and friends also are very involved in the Roscommon Association for the Mentally Handicapped.
