Info on the Central Remedial Clinic
The Central Remedial Clinic is one Ireland’s largest charities for children and adults with physical disabilities.
Founded by Lady Goulding and Kathleen O’Rourke, a remedial gymnast, in the middle of one of the worst polio epidemics seen in Dublin, the CRC has grown significantly over the last 60 years – a far cry from its humble beginnings in a small one bedroom apartment on Pembroke Street.
It now provides a range of health, social and technical services for over 4,500 children and adults with physical disabilities particularly those with Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida and Muscular Dystrophy.
The CRC has four centres in Dublin, Limerick and Waterford, a number of outreach clinics throughout the country, two schools for children aged 3 to 18 and four day activity centres for adults. It aims to help people with physical and multiple disabilities throughout the country reach their full potential, live as independent a life as possible and enable them to make choices for themselves and be inclusive members of society.
All the services provided by the CRC are free of charge and, as such, the clinic needs to raise a great deal of money to maintain its high standard of care. In order to raise this money, the Fundraising Department organise a number of events throughout the year including the CRC Comedy Night and the nationwide Santa Bear Appeal which takes place from the 1st to 11th December. Proceeds from these events go directly to enhancing the services of the CRC and this year one of the major projects the CRC are fundraising for is the construction of a new, state-of-the-art therapy centre on the grounds of CRC Clondalkin.
