Here at Áiseanna Tacaíochta (ÁT), we dedicate ourselves every day to making true equality and independence the new reality for people with disabilities and their families in Ireland.
We need your support to make this happen.
Your donations mean that we can continue our vital work in giving the power back to people with disabilities so that they can take full control of their own lives, in many cases for the very first time. Every euro goes towards establishing Direct Payments for people with disabilities, providing essential services, training and advocacy supports, and running innovative programmes and events which strengthen disability inclusion and awareness across communities.
Direct Payments mean that people with disabilities can choose everything for themselves, empowering them to pursue their ambitions and to live the ordinary, independent lives that we all want. Direct Payments are the difference, for example, between a college student being able to hire a Personal Assistant (PA) to start work at 7am so that they can make their lectures, instead of missing everything because they’re told they have to wait for one who starts at 10am. It’s the mother of a child with learning disabilities being able to buy an extra 20 hours of essential speech and language therapy for her son. It’s the friend being able to meet for that coffee or head out on that night, instead of being stuck home alone.
These are small, normal choices with big consequences, but, shockingly, they don’t exist for most people with disabilities in Ireland. Your support will change that.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is playing an increasingly important part in many companies and organisations’ work, making a huge difference for non-profits across the country.
