    • Des & Debbie Forde (Parents)
      Our son Sam started at Holy Family Pre-School for Children with Special Needs, Sligo when he was 2 years and 10 months, ...
  • Castleconnor Resource Centre, Corballa, Sligo

    In 1997 the Association undertook a further project, with the acquisition, from the Co.Sligo V.E.C., of the Corballa Vocational School:  i.e. the old Vocational School, located on the main Sligo to Ballina Road, in the Parish of Castleconnor.

    The purpose of this new undertaking was to provide a base for the Association’s Training and Employment Services’, for adults with intellectual disabilities and special needs; together with catering for their social and recreational activities.

    Refurbishment of the building represented a large investment for the Association, which was grant aided by the ‘Peace and Reconciliation Fund’. Local people have contributed financially through  many fundraising events of the Association, and of other organisations in the area.

    At our Adult Day Service we strive to meet individual needs of both our younger adults as well as our ageing population of service users.  Our aim is to provide each individual with a full and varied day including activities and programmes which will both improve their quality of life as well as equip them with the necessary skills to achieve their maximum potential.
