Hi, my name is Denise and I joined Áirc in 2015 as Treasurer, then in 2016 I also took on the position of Co-Chairperson sharing the role with Angela.
We are a family of four, Toby 7, Lacey 5, The Husband and me. The world of Special needs has a prominent place in our home.
Toby has Down Syndrome and Lacey has Duplication of Chromosome 9 and ADHD. It is a house of chaos, laughter and the occasional "rocking in the corner with gin" episode. Because of this, I am in the perfect situation to understand the needs and support issues of the families within Áirc Midlands. As well as the crucial work I do with Áirc I have also made lots of friends and found a support network within it of my own. We pride ourselves on being an organisation that welcomes everyone and inclusion for all is of vital importance to us. More than anything we like to promote fun, support and adventure, so come join us!!
