Àirc Midlands is a voluntary run group set up to support children with additional needs and those within their support circle.
It is one of very few umbrella groups that covers all forms of additional needs or long term illness and provides its support in response to individual requirements. This means that support can be given emotionally, educationally, socially, financially or in the form of advocacy or representation.
Past activities include the provision of emergency respite, family fun days, workshops for parents, equipment and therapy subsidies, inclusive and accessible children's parties, information fairs, first aid for carers and much more.
We also work with others involved in the fields of additional needs and community to raise awareness and improve the quality of lives of children with additional needs and their families at both a local and national level.
As a self-funded organisation we are constantly creating fun and innovative fundraising methods and events but we cannot stress enough the importance that our community plays in supporting us.
Our committee is made up of the family and friends of children and young adults with additional needs so all of our funding is directed exactly where it needs to go.
Not a cent is wasted and nobody can stretch a euro like our treasurer.
Every donation is of huge importance to us and will be spent in the local area on services that will directly improve the quality of lives of the families we support.
