Bessborough Centre Staff Told Their Jobs Are Safe And That Community Services Will Continue

The Sisters of the Scared Heart of Jesus and Mary are withdrawing their involvement in the charity this summer


The Bessborough Centre will now be able to continue to operate the creche at the site and the family support, supervised access and theraputic services 

The fate of the surrounding land has yet to be finalised but the Sisters are gifting the Bessborugh campus buildings so that services can continue and will step down from the board of Directors by the end of June and be replaced by lay members 

Speaking to RedFM News, social worker and child protection specialist at Bessborough Tara Keogh says the news is very welcome after a long period of uncertainty for staff and service users
