Showing up for Kids 4 Week Workshop Series started / 9th March 2022

The Reily Foundation’s 4 week Workshop Series ‘Showing up for your kids’ has kicked off with 9 participants. What does this little guy have to do with it? Sometimes do you feel like your wadding through a bucket of 💩. Parents involved in the child protection system have many barriers to navigate through. At The Reily Foundation we work with parents to acknowledge all they and their children are navigating and build on their skills for the sake of their children and the possibility of reunification.
