About Aster Family Support
Aster Family Support is a strengths-based community organisation, and we focus on building supportive relationships, facilitating growth and respecting diversity. Annually we work with over 150 families through our Family Support, Meitheal, Household Assistance, and Triple P services. Based in the Northside Enterprise Centre in Coolock with an office for family appointments in the Northside Civic centre, our service provision team includes Family Support workers who can support families to achieve their goals. Aster Family Support also actively identifies families for whom Meitheal may be helpful and acts as Lead Practitioner in these cases.
Our name “ASTER” comes from what’s at the heart of our organisation and how we work with families:
Assist, Support, Teach, Empower, Resource
Our office hours are 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday and service hours are between 8am - 10pm Monday to Saturday depending on the needs of the families we support.
Aster Family Support aims to nurture children, their parents or guardians by working with them to increase their capacity for day to day living and by building trust with them to support them to be healthy and to stay together.
Aster Family Support is a Company Limited by Guarantee No. 524317. We are a registered charity with CHY No. 19851.
