About Crann2020-05-15T11:53:37+00:00

Crann offer a holistic suite of evidence-based, high quality services and supports for people impacted by Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus and other physical disabilities. 

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.

Services are offered in house at the Crann Centre, or remotely on location. We also offer a range of online services for individuals and groups. 

Our services enable better health and wellbeing for adults, children and their families, whilst empowering them to participate in work or education, social activities and in their community. The ultimate goal is to help improve the quality of life of our service users and their families.

All of our services are framed within a Model of Care which has been adapted from the Aspen Institute’s  The Two-Generation Approach.

The Two-generation (2Gen) approach builds family well-being by simultaneously working together with children and the adults in their lives. The approach recognizes that families come in all different shapes and sizes and that, ultimately, families define themselves.

We collaborate locally, nationally and internationally to ensure that children, adults and families have access to the best information, innovative services and can be signposted to other agencies in our network who can provide additional supports.

Our Board of Directors blends the experience of parents of children with Spina Bifida, Health Service professionals, business, philanthropy and third level professionals to effectively govern the Crann Centre in line with best practice and statutory requirements.
