After School Primary Homework Club

The Homework Club has been running since 2006. We provide 28 places (1st to 6th class) from Monday to Thursday afternoons, 2:45 to 4pm during the normal school year. The club is volunteer led and gives support to young people in maths, English and Irish. We aim to create an environment that makes young people want to learn and support each other in this.

Family Support Meitheal

Using the Tusla early intervention national practice model we work with individual children, their parents, schools, youth services, family resource centre staff, medical practitioners, and other parties with an interest in the child’s life, supporting them in their daily needs and developing their strengths.  Examples of the challenges and issues that Meitheal can help with include:

  • A child having problems in school
  • A child feeling down
  • A child suffering from illness or a bereavement
  • A child exhibiting challenging behaviour

The Family Meitheal is a Creative Community Service that BFRC supports.
