CASA is a volunteer led organisation founded in 1981 to support people with disabilities through a variety of social events. Our aim is to develop friendships and social outlets for people with disabilities. We are unique in that we work with and support people with all disabilities – physical, sensory and intellectual – of all ages and from all backgrounds. It goes without saying that the demand for our services greatly exceeds our volunteer capacity.
We provide the following services:
Our Social groups provide weekly and monthly social activities in our network of over
20 branches nationwide. These include big group events with music and dancing,
and smaller activities which include bowling, cinema trips and shopping. The aim of
these groups is to provide the opportunity for socialising, friendship and support.
Pilgrimage to Lourdes
CASA organises a Pilgrimage to Lourdes every year. Each trip caters for approx. 130 people, not only CASA members but we also liaise with hospitals and hospices to identify people with life limiting conditions that may wish to travel to Lourdes.
