Anam Cara and Covid-19

Anam Cara is committed to the safety and wellbeing of our volunteer parents, professional facilitators and all parents attending the Anam Cara group’s Parent evenings. Although Covid 19 is part of our day to day lives, so is our grief and loss. We know at Anam Cara how important it is being able to talk to other bereaved mothers and fathers, who understand and it helps us know we are not alone.

Anam Cara are working closely with all our venues throughout Ireland to ensure they are following all recommendations set out by the health authorities around facilitating a meeting in the community.

For the reason we will need parents to register for the monthly meetings from September 2020. This is because all venues are following the 2 meters distancing and now have a maximum number of participants in their meeting rooms.

Before registering for your nearest Anam Cara Parent evening, could you answer the below assessment questions.
