Facility will provide respite beds on the Castledermot Road in Tullow
Carlow TD, Pat Deering, says the respite house in Tullow is "complete" and will be handed over to the service provider in the next couple of weeks.
The facility will provide respite beds on the Castledermot Road in Tullow at the former Delaney House building and was purchased early last year by the HSE but will be run by Enable Ireland.
Deputy Deering said: "As you know for the past couple of years I have been keeping you updated on the progress of the respite house development in Tullow, at last the house has been finished and will be handed over to the service provider in the next couple of weeks.
"This service is very badly need for many parents and kids, so over the next short while we will see the benefits of this facility. Well done to all concerned with this development."
Enable Ireland will manage the respite house and they propose to offer a range of services to children in Carlow and Kilkenny.
These services include weekend residential respite, day respite, after school support and respite supports for unforeseen circumstances. Enable Ireland will be contacting families in the coming weeks to advise them on these services.
