In March 2017, Brothers of Charity Services Ireland, Clare began providing supports during the day in the Killaloe & Ballina community to adults with an Intellectual Disability and Autism. This was the outcome of concerted efforts by a local steering group made up of advocates, family members and community services.
The service is quickly expanding and responding to meet local needs with funding supports provided by the HSE. The service is reaching out to others with the intent to build social capacity across our community.
Founded on a social model of service delivery, the ethos of the service is to do everyday things in normal settings that enrich the lives of individuals we work with and to explore each individual’s interests to help them acquire valued social roles within the local community.
We strive to assist individuals to explore new experiences and build relationships with people in the area. Our premises act as a platform from which people can access community resources. Residential supports enable individuals to live in a home of their own supported by staff.
Brothers of Charity Services Ireland have purchased the parochial houses on Abbey Street in Killaloe. It is now intended to refurbish these buildings. The new premises will be the platform for community supports in the future.
Ideally located within walking distance of all local amenities.
