The Hub Training Unit – Duleek Co Meath

The Hub is a new training and day service unit in the centre of the busy village of Duleek and was opened in October 2015. The Hub acts as a base for members who have progressed from the services of the E.L.M.S Centre.

The members use the unit as a base to attend local courses, use the public transport and to access services within the village and towns nearby. The members are assisted by full time staff and their day consists of sessions on social skills, independent travel training, personal care, domestic and household management, money independence, active citizenship, relationship building, sports and recreation.

It is our ambition that the members accessing this service will develop opportunities to gain employment and or work experience in a variety of settings.
