Child Protection and Family Support Training

Working with Diverse Families Training Programme 

The Migrant Family Support Service delivers training to frontline service providers, on how to improve the cultural competence of their service delivery in child protection.

The increasing diversity of communities across Ireland, necessitates service organizations to design more effective mechanisms to assist individuals and families from different class, racial and ethnic backgrounds.

Through our training programme, Working with Diverse Families, NCP provides training for public sector staff such as doctors, nurses, social workers, and teachers who work with families from different cultural backgrounds who are experiencing child protection interventions.

We will provide a vision for how managers can help agencies develop culturally relevant, community-based responses to ethnic minority families in crisis, and present models for moving in this direction.

Our trainers are knowledgeable about a wide range of culturally appropriate services for different client populations.
