Established in 1951 the Central Remedial Clinic (CRC) is a voluntary organisation and national charity working with children and adults with disabilities.

The voluntary sector provides approximately 70% of the disability services in Ireland. Together with many other voluntary organisations and the HSE we deliver a range of services to children and adults with disabilities. We are known for our expertise and experience in the provision of specialist disability services which are delivered alongside our comprehensive general disability services to both children and adults.

Our children’s services have two main divisions:
• regional general disability services in Dublin City and County and • specialist multidisciplinary services to children with physical disabilities in every county in Ireland.

Our adult services are in Dublin and we operate them from several different locations. Adult services are built around individualised and group supports as well as education and work preparation.

We are the Trustees for two special schools in Clontarf and Clondalkin which are responsible for the education of 161 children with physical and other complex disabilities.

In 2021 we will enter the final phase of our current Strategic Plan, a plan that is focused on continuous improvement and growth of our services in line with national policy and innovation in disability.

In 2020 we delivered against all our service contracts. We innovated, reimagined, transformed and most importantly continued to deliver our essential services through a most challenging year.

We are funded through several HSE and other state grants and we also rely on donations and fundraising to support our work.
