Our Services

Respite

We support those with intellectual difficulties and autism along with their families. As many present with challenging behaviour and communication difficulties, support for parents, families and other carers is vital. We offer respite services at dedicated centres run by skilled and experienced staff.

Residential

For those requiring medium and long-term care, we provide residential services where ongoing care and interventions are provided in conjunction with statutory health and educational providers.

Outreach

Tailored support programmes are designed for adults and children in their own homes and community settings. People with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities as well as persons with Autism avail of our outreach services.
