At the Crann Centre we work with all age groups (new-borns, children, teens, adults) and their families living with a neuro physical disability. Our services are focused on, but not limited to, people who have Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus, Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, Childhood stroke and Spinal Cord Injury.
The Crann Centre is located in a purpose built, fully-inclusive, bright modern building in Cork, which blends a learning and supportive care environment with a welcoming family-centred ethos.
Our vision is an inclusive partnership which empowers children, teens and adults living with a neuro physical disability along with their families to live their best lives.
Our mission is to implement an evidence based, best practice Model of Care that delivers meaningful outcomes for the children adults and families who use our services and that we continue to empower them throughout the whole of their lives.
Integrity: We believe in best practice and gathering evidence to validate our impact.
Courage: We support and promote independence in thought and actions.
Respect: We listen, encourage, and show gratitude for support, ideas, and inputs.
Curiosity: We value learning and exploration by providing reliable, accessible information for persons with a disability and their family.
Family led: Through our services we seek to empower families to live their best lives.
Inclusivity: We promote diversity and value varied cultures, and backgrounds, in our relationships and interactions.
Collaboration: We prioritise collaborations with like-minded individuals and organisations to develop the best services and supports.
People with a disability live in families and everyone within that family experiences life differently.
We recognise this through our Model of Care (based on the Aspen Institute 2 Generation Model) by delivering a suite of services for individuals and their families, to support and enhance their lives.
Your needs, and those of your family, change and evolve as you move through life. Our services are delivered through six key themes, allowing for supports that can target one aspect of your life, or approached holistically to support a broad range of needs.
