Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: Parentstop is a voluntary charity offering a free and confidential parent support service. Based in Co Donegal parents access the service on a self referral basis and are offered a listening ear to support them in any parenting challenges they are facing. Parents find here a safe space to talk out their concerns, to get information and help on other supports available and have an opportunity to put in place actions that can help address those challenges. Parentstop works on an inter-agency basis both in letting parents know the service is available to all parents and on developing a referral pathway that meets their current needs.

Whatever the parenting challenge - early years routine/behaviour; youth and teen attitudes and coping skills; experimentation in substance use; partner conflicts; managing families while separated/divorced; coping with grief/locc; etc. Parentstop offers supports to help parents voice their concerns, talk it over, hold that concern, agree a plan and put that plan into action.
