Irish Wheelchair Association
The IWA operates its day services from the Gilbert Centre on Mondays and Wednesdays. A variety of programmes are offered in consultation with service users ranging from mosaic to computers.
The IWA support the Gilbert Centre art group which meets on Tuesday and encourages people with and without disability to explore their creative potential in a supportive environment. They have held a number of exhibitions, both in the Gilbert Centre and in other locations.
Occasionally, we offer one off programmes which, focus on a particular theme e.g. we have run courses on Assertive Communication, Committee Skills and Self Advocacy to name but a few. We would be delighted to meet anyone with a physical and/ or sensory disability who may be interested in accessing our services.
For referral to the service please contact Mags O’Connor (087) 7429274.
