Adult Services | Enable Ireland

Adult Services

Enable Ireland's services for adults are tailored to individual need. We assist people with identifying and setting the goals they want to achieve from their service to improve their quality of life. We do this by listening, learning and adapting services accordingly to meet a person’s expressed needs and wishes.


"People with disabilities have the same rights, hopes, dreams and futures just like anyone else and the Enable Ireland staff have encouraged me to become more independent and confident about myself. "

Services provided include personal assistants, advocacy development, supported employment, mainstream education and training, and support during transition to adulthood from children’s services. Outcomes are measured by quality of life as determined by the service user.

We work with the person, helping them to access additional supports in their community and promoting valued roles for them within it. We do this by providing services within the community and not in isolation from it.

The range of services that Enable Ireland provides depends on the specific contracts in place between Enable Ireland and the HSE, and will vary depending on the part of the country you are in. Visit your local centre page to find out about specific Enable Ireland services offered there.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we set up a Virtual Adult Service with support from Microsoft Ireland volunteers. Now over 170 adult service owners access the virtual service and over 160 hours of services are delivered via the platform every week
