Brothers of Charity Services

The Brothers of Charity Services in Ireland are structured in such a way that the six Regions, Clare, Roscommon, Galway, Limerick, South East and Southern, are operationally autonomous services.

Over the years each region has developed a broad range of services, generally together with voluntary groups. Partnership between Service Users, their Families, Staff, Volunteers and Advocates, ensure our service is fit for the challenges we will face in the future.

Camphill

Camphill was established to work with people who have intellectual disabilities - and this is still its principal role today. From the outset, the intention was to do this work not as a 'job' in the usual sense of the word, but as a way of life.

The Camphill ideal is of a community life where each person according to ability contributes what they can towards the well-being of their fellows.

Our Communities are formed of groups of people, some with special needs or disability, some more able, who live, work and learn together, in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Casa is a voluntary organisation supporting people with disabilities throughout Ireland.  Casa organises social activities, respite breaks and pilgrimages to Lourdes. We also operate a respite house in Malahide, Co Dublin.

CASA's mission is to provide quality respite breaks and social opportunities to people with disabilities and their families, in an atmosphere of friendship, trust and mutual respect, enhancing quality of life and providing a welcome break for both the person with disability and their families.
