About Enable Ireland - Sligo

Enable Ireland provides free services to children and adults with disabilities and their families. Covering childhood to adulthood our expert teams work with the individual and their family on a plan for each life stage.

Our services for children and their families cover all aspects of a child's physical, educational, and social development from early infancy through adolescence. For adults we offer a range of services covering personal development, independent living, supported employment, social and leisure activities.

The demand for our services continues to increase throughout Ireland.

• Stock control – including pricing and tagging
• Cash control
• Manual handling

By volunteering in our charity shop you are helping us to raise vital funds to keep our services running.
