Westmeath Centre for Independent Living – Kinnegad

On 23rd October 2015, Kinnegad Centre for Independent Living held their annual coffee morning along with cake sale. This incredible centre is a community based non profit organisation, dedicated to integrating people with disabilities into community life.

“Independent Living” means that people with disabilities want the same life opportunities and the same choices in every-day life that their able-bodied brothers and sisters, neighbours and friends take for granted. That includes growing up in their families, going to the neighbourhood school, using the same bus, employment that is in line with their education and abilities, equal access to the same service and establishments of social life, culture and leisure. Most importantly, just like everyone else, people with disabilities need to be in charge of their own lives, need to think and speak for themselves.

Well done to a great community team and Shay Murtagh Precast were glad to help with a cheque for €250.00 towards their coffee morning. Picture for L to R, Una Reilly CIL, Mary Mooney Co-Ordinator CIL, Aine Black HR Manager SMP.
