Support The Ability In Disability

Enable Ireland’s annual Life With No Limits’ campaign takes place from 17 -22 September this year. The public can support Enable Ireland’s services for 7,500 children and adults with disabilities by purchasing Life With No Limit’s wrist bands, handy trolley disc or fluffy book markers from Enable Ireland charity shops, TK Maxx stores and volunteer sellers nationwide.

The campaign provides a platform for children and adults with disabilities using Enable Ireland services to talk about how they live Life with No Limits while raising much-needed funds to support the charity’s work. Enable Ireland, in partnership with the HSE, provides specialist therapeutic assessment and intervention to children with complex disabilities and/or developmental delay in the North Tipperary area. They also provide family support and respite services to over 500 children with disabilities in the mid-west. They have a purpose built children’s respite facility, Teach Saoirse, which provides services to 40 children with a range of disabilities and we have recently opened a day service for adults in Nenagh.

Commenting on the Enable Ireland ‘Life with No Limits’ campaign this September, Mary Hynes Enable Ireland Retail Area Manager said, “Life with No Limits is a really positive campaign and we want the public to get on board and support us. There are lots of ways you can help. You can visit our shop in Clonmel and buy a wristband, trolley disc or book mark. Or why not do a wardrobe clear out and donate your unwanted items to us. Our customers are looking for winter woolies, so have a look at last year’s winter wardrobe and donate what you no longer want to. 100% of the profits from our charity shop support our disability services for children and adults. ”

 

Support the ‘Enable Ireland Life with No Limits’ campaign from 17-22 September and help raise vital funds for disability services. Life with No Limits merchandise is on sale in the Enable Ireland charity shop on Mary’s Street and TK Maxx store at the Showgrounds Shopping Centre.

About Enable Ireland:

Founded in 1948, Enable Ireland provides services for 7,500 children and adults with disabilities and their families in 14 counties.

Our services for children and their families cover all aspects of a child’s physical, educational, and social development from early infancy through adolescence.

We offer a range of services to adults with disabilities which include day care training, personal development, supported and independent living, and social and leisure activities.

The demand for our services continues to increase throughout Ireland. We have set ourselves the challenging goal of meeting these needs by providing a full range of high-quality services and expanding into local communities.

Enable Ireland is part funded by the State. Every year we require over €2 million in additional funding to meet the costs of delivering our services. Without this additional income from our shops and fundraising, we would not be able to meet the needs of the children and their families relying on our services.

Enable Ireland has 21 shops across Ireland, selling clothes, books and bric-a-brac. Proceeds go directly to Enable Ireland, improving the services we provide.
