ADAPT Domestic Abuse Services is a Limerick-based voluntary organisation established in 1974. We provide a safe haven for women who have experienced domestic abuse and their children alongside promoting their right to feel safe in their own homes. We also provide quality supports for women and their children to take the necessary steps to overcome the trauma of living with domestic abuse and move on with their lives if they are ready and it is safe to do so.
These services include:
24 hour emergency refuge accommodation,
a 24 hour Freephone helpline
one to one and group support
child and youth services
training & workshops including the Healthy Relationship programme for young people
Domestic Abuse is all too often seen as a woman's issue and through this partnership we hope to encourage men to stand up, speak out and promote the right of women and children to a safe and peaceful life. If you or someone you know may need our support call our 24 hour Freephone Helpline on 1800 200 504.
For any further information we can be found online at www.adaptservices.ie or alternatively contact Laura Bohan on 061-412354.
The Clare Crusaders Clinic opened in 2007 in Barefield, Ennis and now provides therapy and teaching to over 200 children with special needs in County Clare. These services are provided free of charge to the children and their families.
Services offered to children include speech and language therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, special teaching and reflexology together with regular group therapy activities encouraging social interaction and confidence building.
The clinic is available to children of all ages from infants to young adults, ensuring early intervention at a young age or supporting a child's progression through school life whether in the mainstream or special school environment.
Our existing services are maintained through fundraising events and donations with a current annual budget of approximately €250,000.
The significance of the support from Munster Rugby will be a tremendous boost for all the children, parents and staff involved, while the enhancement of our profile together with fundraising efforts will help represent a long term legacy for the Clinic's continued success.
