As the ongoing conflict in Ukraine continues to displace countless individuals, many have found a new home in Oughterard. Clann Resource Centre has been at the forefront of providing essential support and resources to these Ukrainian newcomers, ensuring that they can rebuild their lives in a safe and nurturing environment.
At Clann Resource Centre, we recognize that the challenges faced by newcomers can be daunting. To help address these challenges, we offer a wide range of services and supports tailored to the unique needs of Ukrainian arrivals, including:
Counseling and Therapy Services: Our confidential counseling services provide emotional support for individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, and other mental health concerns that may arise from the stress of relocation and adjusting to a new community.
Family Support Services: Operated by TUSLA: Child and Family Agency, our family support services aim to assist families in overcoming difficulties and building on their strengths within their own homes and communities.
Play Therapy: This service is especially helpful for children who may be struggling with behavioral issues, trauma, or other difficulties stemming from their experiences in Ukraine or the challenges of resettlement.
Art Therapy: A form of psychotherapy that allows individuals to express their feelings and emotions through art, helping them understand themselves better and cope with the challenges of their new life.
Awareness Raising and Signposting: Clann Resource Centre is dedicated to raising awareness on a variety of topics, such as LGBT+ rights, migrant support, traveler supports, services for older persons, disability, homelessness, domestic violence, and mental health.
