How our service is funded

We built our purpose-built premises in the grounds of University Hospital Waterford with money raised through our own funding-raising and with financial support from the HSE, through the National Development Plan.


On an ongoing basis, CRC Waterford is funded under a Section 39 Service Level Agreement with the HSE.


Having locally-based and experienced staff working in Waterford, supported by parents’ organisations and specialist expertise from our main centre in Clontarf, Dublin is working very well. This has shown to be a successful way to deliver specialist local and regional services to families and children with physical disability.
