On Saturday 10th September, Enable Ireland launched its new Strategic Plan 2022-2025 at the Lavanagh Centre, their Children’s Disability Service Centre in Curraheen, Cork. An Taoiseach Michéal Martin spoke at the event and met with Enable Ireland staff, families and adult service owners. 

Enable Ireland Chairman Stephen Haughey introduced the plan and outlined the organisation’s vision for the next three years, 
“Enable Ireland will be an innovative leader providing quality services, positive life experiences and advocating for an inclusive society which empowers people with disabilities. It is a strong vision and reflects the opinions and voices of the many parents, children, adults and staff members who contributed to this plan, outlining their priorities for the years ahead.”

“We are launching this plan at a time of significant change for children’s disability services in Ireland. The transition to Progressing Disability Services that we are in today is particularly difficult for families, who are understandably frustrated. We are committed to working with the HSE and Government to build the capacity of these new team to meet the needs of the children and families relying on them for services. In our adult services the significant national programmes New Directions and Time to Move On are at an advanced stage and we will continue to invest in and develop adult services in line with these. We are committed to opening new hubs and developing our adult services during the lifetime of this plan.”

Speaking at the launch, An Taoiseach Michéal Martin said, “I am delighted to launch Enable Ireland’s Strategic Plan 2022-2025 today. Enable Ireland has a proud history of working in partnership with the state and other agencies to deliver services and to positively impact the lives of people with disabilities and their families. I have no doubt that the passion and commitment of staff in Enable Ireland to improving the lives of service users and owners will ensure that the priorities and goals outlined in this plan become a reality over the coming years”
