Promoting inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities

They provide support to people who have an intellectual disability and their families. They were founded in 1967 and work in mid and south Kildare, east Offaly, west Wicklow and northeast Carlow.

They believe that people with an intellectual disability are important and should be a part of their community like everyone else.

Voice for KARE provides a structure for people who use KARE's Adult Supports to have their say in how KARE operates.

The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for the governance of KARE. The Board is elected each year and includes family members of people who use the service, representatives from the KARE Branches and co-opted members.

There are a number of different ways in which you can get involved with KARE:
  • Become an employee
  • Support a person with an intellectual disability by becoming a volunteer
  • Support their work by becoming a member of one of their Branches
  • Gain experience by joining KARE for your school or college work placement
  • Gain education and skills by joining one of KARE's FAS Employment or Training Programmes
  • Give financial support to KARE by giving a donation or supporting a fundraising event
