One Family offers a wide range of professional services for people working with one-parent families, those sharing parenting, and families in transition or going through a time of crisis.

Professional Development

In 2016, we redeveloped our Profession Development service to even further meet the needs of professionals working with families. Our accredited professional development programmes are for you if:

  • You deliver parenting/family support courses
  • You work with parents and their children
  • You are a family support worker, social worker, youth worker, family therapist, educator, drugs project worker or counsellor

Our programmes will help you to build on your skills, knowledge and approach. They take place in Dublin and regionally throughout the year. Please click here to read more detailed programme information online, or download our One Family Professional Development Services Flier.
