Donate online now to help Ability West help people with disabilities all over the west of Ireland.
Ability West relies on fundraising money to continue providing high quality houses and centres for people with intellectual disability. The majority of fundraising money is used for capital works – for example, in 2009, we completed building two respite houses; one for children and one for adults, located in Galway City.
This was only possible because we were able to match funds provided by the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs and Pobal through the Dormant Accounts Scheme, with the money we have received from various fundraising events over the years.
Even more recently, in 2010 we completed an adult day and respite centre in Mountbellew. This centre was built solely from fundraising money which was as a result of the great efforts of many families, friends and volunteers across the county. Fundraising money is also used to purchase essential aids, appliances, specialised equipment for service users, and buses which play a critical role in ensuring service users can participate fully in community activities.Please ensure when making your payment to fill in the "Add special instructions to recipient" portion in Paypal so we know what your donation is for.
