As part of our ‘We Care’ campaign we want to acknowledge the hard work family carers have provided to loved ones and family members during the pandemic.
We ask you to step up to the challenge and show this wonderful group of people that we are grateful for the enormous contribution they give to our society. The Family Carers tag line is simply ‘No one should have to care alone’. We understand that during the toughest times during the pandemic this wasn’t always the case. Now is their time to shine! Now we want to thank this incredible group of people and let them know, WE CARE!
Family Carers Ireland is the national charity supporting the 500,000 family carers across the country who care for loved ones such as children or adults with physical or intellectual disabilities, frail older people, those with palliative care needs or those living with chronic illnesses, mental ill-health or addiction.
Family Carers provide essential services such as support groups, education and training, respite in the home and counselling services.
We are a Portlaoise based club and we have also chosen to support a local benefactor, the Le Chéile ASD classes – Portlaoise Educate Together N.S. Parents/guardians of the children attending these classes are also classed as family carers.
Portlaoise E.T.N.S were the first school in Portlaoise to open ASD classes in 2013. The official opening of their purpose built Le Chéile extension took place in 2018. This consists of two classrooms, individual work stations, group work areas, in addition to a multi-sensory room and a soft-play area. These areas need to be continuously resourced to ensure that the 12 children and 6 staff can utilise these facilities to their full potential. Essential equipment including furniture, safety padding, multi-sensory equipment and physical education resources are currently required.
