General Services & Capital Projects

Our strategic plan for the next five years has an ambitious capital element focused on two key areas.


In 2021 we signed a service level agreement with the Department of Education and Skills to progress the development of a new DES-funded school and separate specialist and clinical services building. 

In addition to this major development, we undertook capital works in 2021 to temporarily accommodate the new PDS team and to address infection-prevention control in the school.


In 2021, we appointed the design team for the Future Fit project, which is a four-year upgrade and reconfiguration of our headquarters and main premises, in response to new disability policies. 

A combination of fundraised income and statutory grant income is being relied upon to fund these essential infrastructural developments. The plans will be developed in a phased manner, ensuring funds are in place to facilitate the phases underway. Now that a design team is on board, this project will move on in 2022 to focus on end-user needs, clinical adjacencies and accommodation design and stakeholder consultation.
