Founded In 1972
We are in existence since 1972 when our first service, Meals on Wheels, began. In 1980, the purchase and renovation of the building in Brackernagh commenced.
An extension to this building was opened in 1985. This complex has become the hub for the services that we provide, to cater for the needs of our target population in the local area.
In 2006, we were honoured to have an official visit from President McAleese and her husband to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Day Care Centre.
In 2022, we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary.
