KARE provides support to people who have an intellectual disability and their families. We were founded in 1967 and work in the mid and south Kildare, east Offaly, west Wicklow and northeast Carlow areas of Ireland. We believe that people with an intellectual disability are important and should be a part of their community like everyone else. KARE works with each individual who uses the service to support them to develop their skills and abilities so that they can live the life of their choice.
KARE is an innovative organisation that strives for continuous improvement and best practice in all it does. The organisation is accredited at European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) Recognised for Excellence 5-Star level and were the 2016 EFQM Ireland Excellence Award winners.
