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

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. Our old centre was no longer suitable for the needs of our children and the future children of Cork. Since 2016, we have received significant support from the people and businesses in Cork and a €2million Capital Allocation from the HSE. In April 2019, we were delighted to welcome the first families and parents into the new Lavanagh Centre in Curraheen.

Enable Ireland is now the lead agency for three Children’s Disability Network Teams (CDNT’s) at the Lavanagh Centre in Curraheen. From 19th of April 2021, these three teams will provide supports and services for 1,500 children and young people with complex disabilities.

Following the success of the Win A House Cork campaign, the remaining shortfall to bridge the funding gap for the new Children’s Service Centre in Curraheen is €300,000.
