2023 Parent Peer Support fund now open for applications

The Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, Roderic O’Gorman, launched the 2024 Parent Peer Support fund. The fund is open to organisations working with parents and/or children and young people to facilitate the development and support of parent peer support groups.

Beneficiaries of the initial round of Parent Peer Support funding included organisations working with parents of LGBTI+ children, parents of children with a disability and parents of children who have recently migrated to Ireland.

This year, a total of €75,000 will be made available to 37 organisations with each successful applicant receiving €2000 to provide and promote parent peer support group activities across the country.

Minister O’Gorman commented:

“My Department is committed to continually enhancing the existing supports in place, whilst simultaneously implementing new initiatives designed to benefit children and their carers. Parent Peer Support Funding forms part of this commitment, and I was delighted to see how this funding enabled community and voluntary services to provide greater levels of support to parents around the country last year. I was eager to make this funding available again in 2024 following such positive feedback received from services.”

“We are working hard to support all parents in their parenting role, including Ukrainian parents, migrant parents and parents living in International Protection Accommodation”.

The deadline for applications is December 15th 2023. Read more here.

Closing Date:
