Enable Ireland’s Family Support Services are community-based services that assist and support families in their role as caregivers. Family support workers provide supports to individual families in a variety of settings including in the home, in educational settings and other community settings. Family support services are provided to both children and adults.
I support families who have children with disabilities, in their home setting and out and about in the community. I take care of all the children’s needs throughout the day. The support I provide means a lot to the family. They can take a break, or spend time with their other children.
