Level 5 Services Update 7/01/2021:

Our children’s and adults disability services which include clinical, therapy, respite, residential, PA/Family support, community support and day services are all considered essential health services and will continue to be provided in some format during Level 5 restrictions in line with HSE guidance. Our preschools remain closed until 1st February 2021.

We will continue to follow all public health guidelines to ensure the safety of all those availing of and working in our services.  Provision of any service will be subject to individual risk assessments and Service User and family preference to avail of services.  We will use our resources to deliver mixed models of service delivery which will include remote (via telehealth) and face to face service delivery.   

Each local Enable Ireland service will be in touch with those availing of services regarding the options available and any changes to current service delivery. If you have a specific query or concern regarding your services please contact your local centre. You can find all centre contact details here.  

Please continue to check our website for important updates to services.
