The Cork branch provides extra services and support to our members from birth. Speech and language therapy has been our primary focus over the years and we have gone from strength to strength to now employing two full time and two part time therapists. We run a variety of information evenings, social events and educational seminars to support our families.
September 2017 saw the official opening of the ‘Field of Dreams’ which is an adult based training centre. Horticulture, catering and life skills are taught to the 8 adults who have registered for Phase 1 of the 2 year programme which is supported by the Cork ETB. The beautiful surroundings of the Field of Dreams is a wonderfully holistic learning environment which is enjoyed by all our families. Phase 2 will be implemented shortly and Phase 3 is planned for September 2018.
The Cork branch has a wide variety of support for our babies, our children, our teens and our adults.
