On Tuesday & Thursday morning from 11am-1pm, we will have QQI Level 2 “Quantity and Numbers & Writing”.

VOLUNTEERS REQUIRED FOR STREET COLLECTIONS. Our service has a number of Street Collections coming up and we are looking for volunteers. If you have an hour or two to spare, we would really appreciate your support. The collections will be on the following days: Castleisland (Friday 14th of September) & Tralee (Friday 21st of September). For more info, contact Noreen & Therese in our office. All money raised from these collections will go towards supports for service users in these areas.
NATIONAL SURVEY OF SERVICES FOR CHILDREN WITH PERMANENT HEARING LOSS. The HSE is looking for parents to give feedback on the health and educational services available to children who have permanent hearing loss. The working group for the Integrated Care Pathway for Children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing is making recommendations on improving the service. An online survey is available until the 14th of September 2018 to collect this information. If your child has permanent hearing loss, the workgroup would appreciate it if you could spare time to complete the survey.
