Cork Children's Centre Appeal

Join us and build a brighter future for the children of Cork.

We are building a new children’s centre and respite house.

Cork Children's Centre Appeal



We currently provide vital therapies and rehabilitation services to over 860 children like Hannah (pictured) at the Lavanagh Centre in Cork.  The Lavanagh Centre was founded in 1954, over the years we have redeveloped, renovated and extended and now we need a new centre.  Access, parking, space and lack of therapy rooms create challenges daily for parents and staff.  The centre is no longer suitable for the needs of our children and the future children of Cork. We need your help to build a new Children’s Centre in Cork. 

Hannah, aged 7

“During therapy our daughter works hard at achieving her goals.  She deserves to have the best facilities and supports available to her” Kathrina, mother of Hannah, age 7. 

In 2016, we launched an ambitious fundraising campaign to raise €7.5million to build a state of the art Children’s Services Centre on a new site in Curraheen. Since then we have received significant support from the people and businesses in Cork and a €2million Capital Allocation from the HSE. We still need to raise €1.3 million to make this children's centre a reality.  

We have started to build the centre and aim to open it's doors to children with disabilities in 2019. But we can't do this without your support.  Please join us and support our New Cork Children’s Centre appeal today.
