SIL­VER: In­spired

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - KERRY COMMUNITY AWARDS 2018 -

This is very clearly a bot­tom-up or­gan­i­sa­tion with a gen­uine fo­cus on per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties and their fam­i­lies. It of­fers a com­pre­hen­sive range of ac­tiv­i­ties and fo­cuses on the to­tal­ity of peo­ples’ needs. Al­though a Tralee based project, its par­tic­i­pants come from places like Kil­lar­ney, Lixnaw and Lis­towel. This group con­sists of 22 vol­un­tary work­ers who of­fer adults and school leavers with in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­i­ties an en­vi­ron­ment that en­ables and in­spires them to im­prove their lives.
