Any person is at risk of being involved in an accident or situation which can dramatically change the way they live their lives. CORE Ireland work with a number of groups who offer support to those people. Below are a list of support groups available both locally and Nationally.

National Learning Network

Do you need extra supports to get a qualification and to get and keep a job?  If so, one of National Learning Network’s (NLN) 50 training centres around the country could be the answer and we have one right in Navan.

National Learning Network provides mental health services within its extensive range of QQI accredited courses across a range of levels. All of our managers, instructors, rehabilitation officers, resource teachers, social skills facilitators, psychologists and advocacy officers have had extensive training in this field.
