The Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) was founded in 1960 and is one of the leading service providers for people with physical disabilities. We deliver service throughout 58 community centres throughout Ireland.
The IWA operates its day services from the Gilbert Centre from Monday to Thursday.
IWA provides opportunities for the person to socialise and be active by inviting them to join one or more of the centres programmes of interest; educational courses; information and engagement sessions; sport; social events and/or joint projects. The service provides accessible buses, where available, for transport to and from the centre and for social events and trips. The person has a lead role in the planning and evaluation of their service, together with their preferences and support requirements.
For referral to the service, contact Mags O’ Connor on 087-7429274. More information can be found on our website www.iwa.ie
