Neptune House

Neptune House

Neptune House was built in 1999 and it accommodated twenty four young people from the Siret Psychiatric institution. Here they were taught social and vocational skills and how to face life outside of the institution. They have now moved on to live in a more independent environment and we have been able to take a further twenty four other young people from the old state institution to live in this house which is run by the local authorities, although we do help out by sending some of our volunteer workers to support them.

KILLYBEGS(Mic) and KILLYBEGS

KILLYBEGS(Mic) and KILLYBEGS

Killybegs House accommodates four of our older young ladies who look after themselves. They cook, clean and shop by themselves. They also help out in our other house on the same site and socialise with the young people that live there.

We differentiate between the two houses by calling one, " Killybegs mic" this means smaller. The other house is home to five young people

MANION HOUSE

This home accommodates six young people some of whom are disabled but are helped by their colleagues living with them. The young people living here spend their time in meaningful activity during the day, either down on the farm or in one of the vocational workshops.
