Annual Work Conference October 2014

Citywest hotel to host the highly successful Annual Work Conference which will welcome attendees from all corners of Ireland.

The National Family Support Network (NFSN) is delighted to announce that its annual work conference will take place on Saturday the 18th of October 2014 in the Citywest Hotel in Saggart, Co. Dublin. The theme for this year’s conference is the Impact of Substance Misuse and will feature key speakers such as Susan Scally from the Drugs Programme Unit, Dr. Helen McMonagle psychologist with the Alcohol Forum and Mark Kennedy from Merchants Quay Ireland.


The National Family Support Network is an autonomous self-help organisation that respects the lived experiences of families affected by drugs in a welcoming non-judgemental way.  The Network primarily supports the development of family support groups and networks throughout Ireland. This is seventh year of the highly successful conference and it caters for the hundreds of members of the Family Support groups throughout Ireland and also for family members dealing with issues of substance misuse. Not only will attendees be able to listen to the key note speakers  they will also be able to take some time out to relax at the many workshops on offer including Indian head massage and Mindfulness.

NFSN Director Sadie Grace is thrilled so far with the response from the many family members and family support groups who are planning to attend the conference;

“The interest in this year’s conference has been extremely high and many family support members are travelling from all over Ireland to attend the event on the 18th of October. Places are booking out quickly so we would like to encourage all family support groups to reserve their place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We really want all our members to take some time out to attend our event and reflect on all the hard work they have completed throughout 2014”.
