Our beneficiaries, the Central Remedial Clinic, Rehab and the Mater University Hospital rely on funds provided by The Care Trust.

Our beneficiaries receive state funding and fund-raise directly themselves, however funds raised by The Care Trust funds are a very important source of extra funding which can be allocated to different projects as required.

The Central Remedial Clinic (CRC)

The Central Remedial Clinic – is a national organisation for the care, treatment and development of children and adults with physical and multiple disabilities. Most clients attending the CRC have a congenital physical disability such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Spina Bifida or Erbs Palsy.




The Rehab Group

Investing in people, changing perspectives

The Rehab Group provides health and social care, training, education, rehabilitation and employment services for young people and adults with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities. It also offers assistance to people with mental health difficulties, autism and acquired brain injury. A range of essential services are also provided for older people, carers and others who are marginalised.

The Mater University Hospital

The Mater University Hospital – 150 years caring for the nation commonly referred to as the Mater Hospital, holds a unique place in the delivery of healthcare not only to the community of North Dublin but also to the rest of the country with its tertiary services. The hospital has two national specialities, Cardio- Thoracic surgery (including transplantation) and Spinal Injuries. Other areas of expertise include breast cancer screening and oncology.





The Care Trust – Supporting CRC, Rehab and Mater University Hospital

The Care Trust is owned on a 50/50 basis by The Central Remedial Clinic (CRC) and Rehab and our evolution dates back over 50 years to when our parent bodies were founded. We are a not-for-profit organisation with registered charitable status. For over 50 years The Care Trust has been raising essential funds to support the work of our beneficiaries – the Central Remedial Clinic, Rehab and the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital. Our work ensures that many thousands of children and adults with physical, medical or intellectual disabilities, those who are socially disadvantaged and those requiring medical care, have the opportunity to achieve their full potential and enjoy the same quality of life as everyone else Our beneficiaries receive state funding and also fundraise directly themselves.

It is your contributions and support that allows our beneficiaries to continue their work and have a lasting impact on thousands of people and their families across Ireland availing of services in Health care, Social care, Rehabilitation & employment and to children and adults with disabilities.
