We are changing the face of support for people with intellectual, physical and sensory disability and/or autism in Ireland. We offer progressive, one-to-one solutions geared towards the empowerment of the people we support, rather than limiting their experiences of life. We put each individual, and support of their disability, at the centre of everything we do, helping them live an involved, meaningful and empowered life; focusing not on what they can’t do, but on what they can achieve. This spirit comes to life in our client-centred, home-from-home Residential Centres, and in the specialist services we provide. One service is for young adults, one is for children.
