When new residents arrive at any of our centres, the centre manager organises a welcome & Integration meeting followed by a Q&A session, where life at the centre is explained.
Children living in accommodation centres are educated through the mainstream education system and can access free primary and post-primary education in the same way as any other child in Ireland.
Our teams work closely with IPAS representatives who are responsible for enrolling the children in the centres at the local schools. School buses (if required) are organised for children by the centre via IPAS through the Department of Education & Department of Transport.
Adult education is available to our residents through the Local Education Training Boards. Various classes are held on-site and off-site are currently available online. We also offer volunteering-based classes through the Friends of the Centre program and the Volunteer Ireland network.
Residents in our centres have access to local health services, similar to the local communities. These healthcare services are provided through the medical card system.
A full linen change-over service ordered from our external linen company is distributed weekly, delivering fresh bed linen and towels to each room.
We have undergoing transitional programs tailored to each centre to help the residents to transition from our centres to a fully independent living situation.
Through the Friends of the Centre Program, an integrational community initiative.
