Services
Sunbeam House, a voluntary charitable organisation, delivers a wide range of services to adults diagnosed with intellectual disability. Services are provided at 30 centres located throughout Co. Wicklow and south Co. Dublin. Programmes are tailored to meet the individual choices of clients in our care, and this choice is afforded to them with our quality system ‘Personal Outcomes’. The quality system is sponsored by The Council on Quality and Leadership, Maryland, U.S.A., and Sunbeam House is the first organisation in Ireland to receive this independently validated accreditation.

Clients in our care have a range of needs which vary and change with age and progress. These needs vary from day-care services, residential services, sheltered employment services, supported employment, and special care requirements. Referrals to our services come from the Health Service Executive (HSE).
