Approx. 140k children in Ireland live with a disability. Children with a disability should have opportunities to play with others, be physically active, learn, grow, connect, and have fun. But, many children and adults living with disability have difficult finding accessible play areas that families and friends can enjoy together.
This is why we are developing a ¼ acre, fully accessible playground and leisure area for our clients at the Crann Centre in Ovens, Co. Cork. Construction started in July 2021.
Volunteers are key contributors to the unique culture at the Crann Centre.
Their skills and experience greatly enhance our capacity to deliver services and supports.
We are always keen to hear from people who are keen to give their time or knowledge or get involved.
At Crann, we believe in supporting people to self-advocate. The goal of self-advocacy is for people to decide what they want then develop and carry out a plan to help them get it.
Through our services, we aim to empower people to build their skills, confidence and social capital which will equip them as advocates.
We are happy to help when it is needed by using our voice and resources to influence the things that matter most to the people who use our services and their families.
