CURA offers a variety of services to those dealing with an unexpected pregnancy. They offer free pregnancy testing, pregnancy counselling from a trained counsellor, referral to medical services, information and support. They also offer School awareness programmes.
Over 400 volunteer counsellors throughout Ireland work with CURA all of whom have undertaken training in crisis pregnancy counselling. A number of volunteers have also undertaken training in post abortion counselling.
CURA volunteers are trained to offer non-directive counselling. They will not judge you, or tell you what you should do. They will listen and help you to talk about your feelings, worries and difficulties, and they will give you the time, space and support you need to explore the options open to you in deciding what to do about your pregnancy.
The local CURA office is located at St. John’s Pastoral Centre, John’s Hill, Waterford.
