Limerick City Homemaker Family Support Service is a new service managed and delivered by Barnardos, funded by Limerick ABC Start Rite, Limerick City and Council Social Interventions fund, TUSLA, Limerick CYPSC and Barnardos. It is a home based family support service that emphasises working with parents in a practical way to support them in their parenting capacity and household routines. It is an early intervention; outcomes focused Programme that works with families with additional needs (Levels 2-3 on the Hardiker Model).
The Homemaker Family Support Service provides practical, home-based support (such as helping the family to get ready for school, prepare meals, manage the household, etc.) to families that are struggling to cope with the demands of daily life for a range of reasons.
It is a flexible service that works with families at key periods during the day such as mornings/getting ready for school and evenings (family meals, homework, and bedtime), or at other times identified in partnership with the family.
Limerick City Homemaker Family Support Service works with parents primarily in their homes across the urban area of Limerick City. The administrative base for the staff team is Barnardos, St. Mary’s National School, Bishop St, Limerick.
The Homemaker Service works directly with parents. The approach upholds community development and family support principles, working in partnership with parents to enhance their capacity to support and care for their children. All work is done in partnership with the family rather than on their behalf.
An interagency approach is key to successful outcomes for families engaged with the service. Referrals for the Homemaker Service are likely to come primarily from Public Health Nurses, Schools and other community organisations etc.
