Clarenmore Services

Clarenmore Services comprises of Corrib Residential Services (3 Residential Houses and 5 Apartments), a Supported Independent Living Programme (15 Apartments) and 2 Day Centres.

The residential houses/apartments provide full-time residential accommodation for a maximum of six individuals per house and one individual per apartment. The houses are managed by Team Leaders and staffed with Social Care Staff.  We aim to provide a homely environment for the people we support, encouraging them to make real choices over the day-to-day issues that are a part of all our lives. We aim to facilitate service users to take part in the activities that include social and recreational in their local community.

Each individual will contribute towards accommodation charges and daily expenses e.g. Utility Bills, food and on-going maintenance.claren2

The Supported Independent Living Programme (SILP) aims to support and develop independence

and community living. The SILP provides a service based on mutual respect that builds confidence.

The SILP supports learning and decision making and promotes empowerment for each of the people who use the service. The SILP team ethos is based on: Listening to what each individual wants. Developing individual plans focusing on the needs of the person using the service. Ensuring that each individual is involved in all aspects of decision making about their lives.

The day/ resource centres, Clarenmore and Glenina are located in Galway City, and  provide day programmes for adults with a mild and moderate intellectual disability. The aim of each Service is to offer a varied and stimulating day programme where choice is central for all who attend. We aim to promote a positive environment where each individual feels secure and happy in a modern, person-centered Day Service. Activities are planned on an individual basis, with the emphasis on new challenges and opportunities. We promote independence and freedom of choice to enhance each individual’s quality of life.


Individuals in the Day Centres are invited to partake in a variety of programmes supported by Teachers, Instructors, Supervisors, and Care Staff.   A number of our day programmes are grant funded by Galway Roscommon Education and Training Board (GRETB) and Galway City Arts Council and Department of Social Protection.
