Supported Living

The Cloonavin Green Project - small group supported living for people who have a learning disability; with support staff on site 24/7.

Cloonavin opened in January 2006, providing accommodation, care and support in six self contained houses. 

On site, small groups of people (between four and five) live together in their own house. Life at Cloonavin Green is very independent with support available from the Support Workers who are on site 24 hours per day. If people need it, they can get help with cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping, social activities and general daily life. We don't profess to do anything ground breaking at Cloonavin. Therein perhaps lies it's success. We just try to give people normal opportunities, normal rights, normal responsibilities... normal lives, balanced with as much support or as much independence as they need. 

We always do our best to promote daytime opportunities including employment, educational placements, day opportunity placements and day care placements. We believe that what someone gets up to during the day should be challenging, rewarding, meaningful and enjoyable. Just with all other forms of support, it should be needs led, exploiting an individuals potential, whilst ensuring that supports are in place to assist and ensure safety. 

The atmosphere at the project is always very upbeat. It's a busy place to be as there is always something going on. It's a great place to live and a great place to work. The team of staff have an excellent work ethic; 'if it needs done... let's do it' attitude.
