L’Arche Ireland in New Directions Learning Event

May 24, 2016


Last Wednesday 18th of May, our CEO Mairead Boland Brabazon attended the New Directions Learning Event in Tullamore Court Hotel, Co Offaly. The objective of the event was to present eleven of the projects that had been changed or reconfigured during the last 5 years in line with New Directions, which aims to develop day services to support people who have an intellectual disability to live full and meaningful lives.


It was a great chance to see some of the changes that other service providers have implemented in their projects in areas such as a change in locations, changes in staff roles, development of community networks, and introduction of positive risk taking. It was also very interesting to see all the creativity and innovation that is going on in services throughout Ireland, which is really enhancing the lives of the people they support.


Mairead was happy to come home with more ideas to continue to develop and enhance the work we already do together in the communities.
