These are just some highlights of what we have achieved together this year

 At St Francis Special School in Kerry, every classroom has been furnished with a new interactive whiteboard and laptop. And every one of the 61 children who attend the school have been provided with a smart device, which closes the gap between school and home life – especially for those who are non-verbal. 

“Our daughter Aoife is non-speaking so couldn’t tell us about any aspect of her day. We couldn’t be happier with how the school has introduced equipment to give our little girl a voice and share her school day with the family.” Aisling, Aoife’s mum.

 Meanwhile in Dublin, an additional polytunnel, with raised plant beds and wide paths has been installed. This means that even more day service users like Stephen (pictured) can learn to grow their own food.

 “He enjoys the classes and hopefully will complete his Horticultural module called Let’s Dig.”  Veronika, Stephen’s Instructor.


And in the Lucena CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) Clinic, a project is about to get underway which will transform the outdated clinic buildings. Mental health challenges have changed a lot since the original clinic opened in 1955 and the overall aim of this fantastic project is to make the service more inclusive and the facility more accessible to the neurodivergent community which it now serves.

None of this wonderful work would be possible without your kind support. Please donate to our Christmas appeal to enable our life-changing work to continue.
