Inspired is a not-for-profit organisation. We provide a day service for adults with mild to low moderate intellectual disabilities who have completed post-primary or secondary school. There is no upper age limit or time limit for attending Inspired. The organisation was founded in 2014 by a group of parents who believed that people with intellectual disabilities should be an integral part of society, having equal rights to participate in education and employment. They set out to establish a service where self-advocacy and social inclusion were prioritised.
At Inspired we focus on individual ability, enabling participants to achieve their full potential, by encouraging personal choices, interests, and advocacy. The service is focused on the delivery of continued learning and employment supports for each individual participant. We are committed to providing exceptional person-centred support.
Our work is aligned to New Directions, the National Framework for Person-Centred Planning, the Comprehensive Employment Strategy for People with Disabilities, the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC) Act 2014, the Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Act 2015, and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
