About Us

The Brothers of Charity Services West Region provide a wide range of services to people with an intellectual disability and their families across Counties Galway and Roscommon. The services range from Multi-disciplinary Services to Children 0 – 18 and direct respite support for Families, along with a variety of programmes for Adults, devised according to the level of support that individuals require and priorities that they identify. Services include educational, day, residential, respite, and family support, along with a range of multidisciplinary support services and supports to individuals who live independently.

The West Region comprises services in Counties Galway and Roscommon following the 2018 integration of the former Galway and Roscommon Regions.

We aim to deliver a rights-based model of service to the people we support in line with the new Assisted Decision-Making Act. Our services are funded under a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with the HSE.
