Our service is  based on partnership, dignity, respect and the development of choice for those who use it. We have developed the service in collaboration with the Methodist congregation who have welcomed the opportunity for their premises to be utilised in a way that would be of benefit to the wider community.

The Dun Laoghaire centre is situated in the Methodist Hall on Northumberland Avenue, off the main street opposite the Shopping Centre. It is within easy reach of the DART station and very close to the 46A bus route. Transport may be provided on a limited basis to service users within the catchment area who are unable to access public transport.

Who can avail of this service?

  • Service users from the catchment area of Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown currently attending Enable Ireland schools in Sandymount and Bray.
  • Other people with a primary physical disability from this catchment area not currently associated with Enable Ireland.

How can I access this service?

Referrals to the service can be made through the individual, the individual’s parents or guardians, the HSE, their school, social worker, vocational guidance officer and other such persons. Contact the centre directly for more details.

Programmes and Activities

Activities and programmes are undertaken in consultation with individual service users with reference to their needs and aspirations. Some people avail of the service on a daily basis and have the option to participate in the LIFE training programme whereas others choose to attend once or twice per week for specific modules or to follow an individualised plan.
