where your money goes

Our charity is greatly reliant on fundraising income and donations. This year we are fundraising to cover the cost of client transportation services and vehicle leasing costs which are used to transport a number of our service users from their homes to our dedicated service centres and to access community integration activities and daytrips.

 

The transport facility is a fundamentally important aspect of the CAA’s service as it allows service users availing of our services to access and become a part of the community in which they are based and allows helps in improving socialisation skills. Community integration is a very important part of our charities work which is one of the reasons the transport function is so important.

 

People with disabilities should not be seen or treated any differently than any other actively participating members of community. The perception of people with disabilities has gradually improved throughout the years and this can be largely attributed to a better focus on integration with others in their community.
