NEW COMMUNITIES PARTNERSHIP (NCP) SHOWS AN INCREASE IN DEMAND NATIONALLY FOR ITS MIGRANT FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICE

At its national conference in Dublin Castle today (30 March), NEW COMMUNITIES PARTNERSHIP (NCP), supported by Tusla – Child and Family Agency, highlighted the positive work it is doing in supporting migrant communities in Ireland.
