Shannon Region Services

This covers the South Clare area broadly including Quin, Newmarket on Fergus, Shannon, Sixmilebridge, Cratloe.

We have a number of apartments in the town as well that we use as bases to support people from as they get out and about locally in normal everyday settings. Many of the people we support have jobs in the community in factories and restaurants and cafes or do work experience in a variety of setting such as Oasis Gardens in Drumgeely, Shannon.
As a HSE funded service we provide support to individuals with an intellectual disability and autism who are over 18yrs. We work in collaboration with family members and community networks to include people in what is going on in their area. Contributing and taking up valued roles such as workers, volunteers, learners, community members, entrepreneurs etc.

Each individual is unique with their own aspirations and needs and we seek to meet theses as best we can; drawing on the extensive resources and opportunities in our community setting in Co Clare.

We provide respite breaks in our community based Respite Service in Shannon as well as through HomeShare Clare.
We also provide residential supports for people who develop their own home with HSE allocated funding. We work with Clare County Council and Banner Housing Association as well as with private landlords.
