Western Care Association exists to empower people with a wide range of learning and associated disabilities in Mayo to live full and satisfied lives as equal citizens. We achieve this through the provision of a comprehensive range of innovative services and supports.

We are a voluntary organisation, made up of parents/family members, service users, staff, supporters and volunteers, and, in keeping with our pioneering traditions, we believe in:

  • Supporting service users in making choices
  • Community-based services
  • Partnership with families and service users
  • The essential value of the voluntary organisation
  • The vital input of volunteers and friends.
  • The principle of accountability.
  • The unique contribution of all our staff
  • Partnership, unity of purpose and mutual respect in the achievement of our aims
  • Service through partnership and co-ordination with local and national organisations
  • Continually learning to improve the quality of the way we do things
  • The pursuit of equality of access and full service for all
