Rehab

The Rehab Group is an independent not-for-profit organisation working for social and economic inclusion among people with disabilities and others who are marginalised.

Each year, more than 60,000 people access our training, employment, social care and commercial services in the Group's network of some 200 centres across Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands and Poland.

Our philosophy is based on the belief that regardless of a person's disability or social circumstances, it is ability that should determine success in life.

As a result, Rehab's role goes beyond providing services that enable our clients to make the most of their skills and talents in the workplace and the wider community.

We are also a leading campaigner for reforms to remove the barriers preventing equal opportunities, particularly for people with disabilities.

Rehab is committed to the formation of a broad coalition of all stakeholders within the disability sector and supports the full implementation of the recommendations of the Commission on the Status of People with Disabilities.

We are also deeply involved in the development of a more business-like, rather than merely philanthropic, approach to the provision of disability services through the Not-for-Profit Business Association. Rehab has NGO status to the United Nations.
