Dóchas Midwest Autism Support was established by parents in 1997 in response to the need for an organisation to represent the needs of people diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the Mid-West region. The charity supports children, young adults and their families. We currently receive a grant from the HSE which helps however every year we need to raise 70% of our €158k annual costs to enable us to continue providing essential services. We rely heavily on public fundraising and the generosity of communities, workplaces, schools, and individuals. We value your support in helping us to support children and adults with ASD and their families.
Whether you’re hosting an event in your home, school, local community or workplace, there are so many ways you could support us. Every fundraising event makes a difference, no matter how big or small, so thank you for your support. Click for more info.
Dóchas Midwest Autism Support has a charity shop at 14 Parnell Street, Limerick. The shop is run by our Shop Manager and a team of wonderful, dedicated and hard-working staff and volunteers who we could not do without. Click for more info.
We rely on the generosity of people like you and really do appreciate any amount that you can afford to donate – thank you so much!
