Sánas, the family owned provider of support services for people with intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder and acquired brain injuries in Ireland, is delighted to announce the official opening of its new service centre in Balbriggan.
The centre was officially opened by Minister of State at the Department of Rural & Community Development, Joe O’Brien TD.
Sánas is an alternative respite service for children and young adults that aims to promote a stable and progressive environment that supports service users to develop their strengths, while providing frequent and reliable respite for their families.
Each service user is provided with the opportunity to develop their independence, learn new skills and make new friends. Services at Sánas are based around five core values; supportive, alternative, nurturing, active and social.
The centres offer individualised support plans which are carefully devised using Sánas’s THINC therapeutic model of care which keeps the service user’s needs and interests at the core of their service.
