We provide services and supports to adults with intellectual disabilities. We are committed to New Directions, the national strategy for people with an intellectual disability. Everyone we support has a Person Directed Plan which outlines his or her life goals in work, education, socialisation, relationships, living circumstances and other life skills.
We have a large variety of supports available for adults. We aim to find the best fit for each individual. We have locations throughout the catchment area, from Grand Canal in Dublin 4, to Montemor in Ravenswell in Bray,
with other centres in Dun Laoghaire, Dalkey, Ballybrack, Glenageary, Stillorgan and Sandyford. People attend the location which best suits their needs. We also partner with community groups and facilities such as the Lexicon in Dun Laoghaire, Mountown Community Centre in Monkstown. In addition, we have a number of joint programmes with the ETB (formerly the VECs), and Trinity College, Dublin.
We provide support for paid employment, voluntary employment and self-employment
We provide community and in-house support for sports, socialisation and recreation through a wide range of activities.
We support people in friendships and intimate relationships. For more information on our Relationships, Understanding and Awareness Programme (RUA) see the Callan Institute website.
Our aim is to make sure that people meet their full potential. We support people to become job-ready, to travel independently, to cook their own food, to attain qualifications and so on.
We have specific programmes for school-leavers.
When people choose to stop working as they age, they can join our active retirement group.
We provide services to adults with mild, moderate, severe or profound intellectual disabilities, and there are also limited clinical supports available in certain cases.
