Our Families & Friends

The Association of Families and Friends is a group of individuals committed to the welfare and support of service users in Cheeverstown House. We work through a committee which is elected annually at our AGM. 

Our goal is to provide support, information and advice to families and service users.

Many members of the committee are parents who are well placed to understand problems that are encountered. The committee is also in a position to arrange appropriate advice from professionals if necessary.

Representing Families

We are separate from the running of Cheeverstown House, and we can advocate for, and represent all service users and their families with a strong voice. We meet on a regular basis with the chief of executive of Cheeverstown House to discuss the views and concerns of parents.

Who can join?

You are welcome to join the association if you are

  • A parent
  • A sibling
  • A friend of the family
  • A friend or relative of a service user
  • Wishing to support our work.
