Fund for New Children’s Centre in Cork

610 children and their families currently visit our outdated and unsuitable premise in the Lavanagh Centre in Cork for services. Over the next three years we plan to build a state-of-the-art facility catering for children and young people with disabilities and their families today and for generations to come. The site for this new centre has already been purchased with funds raised by voluntary fundraising. In order to build and complete this much needed Children’s Centre, including hydro-therapy pool, we will need to raise a further €7.5million over the next three years. 

New Respite Facility in Cork

We are building a respite centre for children in Curraheen, Cork. This centre will replace the former respite house at Park Avenue, Ballintemple in Cork which was closed in 2014 as it was no longer suitable. The new centre will have four bedrooms and can accommodate up to six children on a given night. Respite provides children with a chance to develop their independence and spend time with their friends.
