Barnardos Tallaght Annual Report

Barnardos. (1996). Barnardos Tallaght Annual Report.
The agency has worked in Tallaght for some nineteen years and has grown and developed with the area. Our original involvement was located in the St. Dominic's/Avonbeg area and centred mainly on the needs in that locality, providing pre-school care in Millbrook Health Centre and a Neighbourhood Resource Centre at Avonbeg Gardens. Now our work covers the greater Tallaght area and beyond. Many of our services are still located at Millbrook Health Centre and accessed through our Minibus from all the West Tallaght estates. Part of the Special Needs Service is still based in Avonbeg Gardens, where the former Neighbourhood Resource Centre is now known as St. Muirin's House. Some of our services, notably the Youth Action Project and part of the Special Needs Service, are based in Jobstown in a house leased from the Corporation at a nominal rent. The Agency is actively pursuing the possibility of locating more of our services within West Tallaght, among the families we serve.
