ETHOS OF AISLING PROJECT
Aisling Project provides a safe and secure environment for all attending children and young people. We have always been inspired by a vision of love, care and support with each child and young person as the focus for everything we do. Aisling Project provides a wide range of ever expanding activities all in a welcoming, safe, caring and fun-filled environment.
Aisling Project strives to improve educational outcomes and actively encourages improved school participation and completion. We have a strong focus on the voice of the child and respecting each child as an individual.
Each child and young person who attends is provided with a hot nutritious dinner and is supported with their homework. Activities provided are always evolving and include Drama, Swimming, Lego Robotics, Gymnastics, Health Awareness, and Gardening Programmes.
Aisling Project takes a holistic child focused approach and provides a wrap-around approach to care, education, and listening to the voice of the child. It has links to several other services, both local and further afield and makes appropriate referrals when required.
Aisling Project is financed through state and charitable funds.
