Care Centre Business Case


Wednesday October 03 2018 12:35 PM

Briefing in Leinster House 

Today, MS Ireland presented the MS Care Centre Business Case to TDs and Senators in Leinster House. We were overwhelmed by the support shown by your local representatives at today's event.

In a video released to coincide with the presentation, Mark Mitchell shares why further investment is important and the services offered at the Care Centre. Watch here

The MS Care Centre is a state-of-the-art respite facility. Admitting and welcoming 400 people annually, the Care Centre not only provides people living with MS and their caregivers a break but delivers a range of therapeutic services, neurological assessments and social activities.

Due to decreased income, the Care Centre only opens 40 weeks per year. MS Ireland are requesting a further €600,000 in annual investment due to the increased demand on the service. This would see the Care Centre open 350 days per year from 2019 and provide an extra 1,128 bed-nights annually. 

MS Ireland will continue to campaign to secure additional funding to open our respite service 350 days per year.

Thank you for contacting your local representatives. Your involvement and action makes a difference. #ISupportMS
