Our service users advocating at a conference held in the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel


A sports day organised by service users and staff at the Tait.


As part of our service provision, we organise Summer outings in groups to places chosen by our service users as part of their PCP. This is a photo of a day trip to Lahinch which included a walk on the beach some shopping, lunch out, and a motivational speech on how we can improve our lifestyle. Even though it was a brief speech it covered several aspects, such as family, work, inner peace, health tips, etc… We were given some nice souvenirs at the end, some pens, water bottles, and samples of natural supplements for us to try out, they said that if we liked them we could click here and purchase a 30 day package.

Certificate in Leadership and Advocacy at LIT

At the Tait this year we had 3 successful Graduates from the Limerick Institute of Technology. These were Barbara Hanley, Brian McNamara   and Josephine Mulqueen. The course they completed was a Certificate in Leadership and Advocacy.

The aim of this course is to develop leadership and advocacy skills in people who have an intellectual disability. This programme is a good choice for those who want to further their understanding of basic human rights and who want to develop their skills in a safe classroom environment. The course was delivered on a one-day-a-week basis over 14 weeks. The participants had a full day on campus in LIT and took part in the graduation service too.
