The National Federation of Voluntary Bodies Providing Services to People with Intellectual Disability is a national umbrella organisation for voluntary/non-statutory agencies who provide direct services to people with intellectual disability in Ireland on behalf of the HSE. The 60 Member Organisations account for in excess of 85% of this country’s direct service provision to people with an intellectual disability. The services provided to people with an intellectual disability are founded on the values as set out in the O’Brien (1987) Principles of Inclusion, Choice, Dignity, Respect, Participation and Contribution. They are rooted in the rights based perspective that people with intellectual disability have the right to live full and active lives, and be active participating members of their own community.
RehabCare is the provider of choice of person-centred, health and social care services that facilitate people who are disadvantaged to participate in the life of their local community in ways that match their choices, aspirations and needs.
Stewarts Care Limited is a residential and day care facility for children and adults with an intellectual disability, some of whom present with a physical disability also.
