The Central Remedial Clinic works with 4,000 children and adults with disabilities throughout Ireland.
We are an organisation with an annual expenditure of around 20 million Euros. In 2015 our statutory income was 79% of our total income and our voluntary income was 5%.
Most of our income comes from a range of statutory agencies through service agreements, grants and project funding. We also receive voluntary income through fundraising, donations and sponsorship, with support coming from both the general public and the private sector. One of our sources of voluntary income is from The Care Trust, which is 50% owned by the CRC and 50% by Rehab. The Care Trust runs an independent lottery on behalf of the CRC, Rehab and the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital.
The CRC complies with standards and reporting requirements in all our funding. We publish our accounts annually with the Companies Registration Office. The CRC is also committed to the standards outlined in the Governance Code. We confirm that our organisation complies with The Governance Code for the Community, Voluntary and Charitable Sector in Ireland. Our declaration of compliance can be viewed here.
The CRC is committed to being accountable and transparent so that donors, prospective donors and fundraisers can have full confidence in the CRC. The CRC Donor Charter can be viewed here.
CRC is fully committed to achieving the standards contained within the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising 2008 and the newly developed Guidelines for Charitable Organisations on Fundraising for the Public.
This new statement was developed by the Charities Regulator and exists to provide charities in Ireland with a Fundraising Code of Practice.
The purpose of these statement is to:
Improve fundraising practice;
CRC believes we meet the standards the Code of Practice sets out.
Since 2014, there were significant governance changes made at the CRC. Some of these changes were made following the recommendations contained in the report of the Interim Administrator, appointed to the CRC by the HSE.
