First Impressions

Buckley, M. (1995). First Impressions.
On 15th December, 1994 the Edenderry Family Centre was launched by Barnardos in conjunction with the Midland Health Board. This was in response to needs identified by the community. Key people in the community were interviewed e.g. Public Health Nurses, Social Workers, others engaged in the provision of Health Care, Social Welfare Personnel, Teachers, Religious, Gardai, and a cross section of the community. In our interviews with people we were impressed by the friendliness and openness to us, their recognition of their problems, and the desire to effect change.
