We can accommodate six girls at any one time. Placements are allocated for a maximum of six months. Two placements are specifically for 18-19-year-old
girls and are allocated on a planned basis. Four placements are specifically for 15-17-year-old girls
and can be accessed on an emergency or planned basis.
Girls who are in Residential Care will often access other Good Shepherd Cork services, such as our aftercare and support, or education and training programmes to gain the skills and support they need through education, life skills, advocacy and social support.
When girls are ready to move on, if they are not returning to the family home, staff will work with statutory and voluntary bodies to find suitable accommodation.
Once girls have moved on they still have access to a range of Good Shepherd Cork support services including weekly support groups, as well as Health Promotion, youth club “Henrietta’s” for arts & crafts, cooking nights, films, and fun social activities and a nail bar where girls can practice professional skills and enjoy socialising together.
