To promote equality and to fight disadvantage through world-class services and initiatives
A World of Equal Opportunities
Rehab Group is a leading provider of world-class services, committed to achieving growth, sustainability and value for money in partnership with its customers.
The Rehab Group is an independent international group of charities and commercial companies which works towards a world where every person has the opportunity to achieve their potential. We work in local communities to provide high-quality services and opportunities to people who need them.
Over 3,200 Rehab staff provide health and social care, training and education, and rehabilitation, employment and commercial services in Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, Poland and Saudi Arabia. These services enhance the quality of people’s lives, by supporting people in fulfilling personal goals, in accessing new opportunities and in playing a more active role in their communities. Rehab enables people to make the most of their skills and talents, to take up employment or further education and to live more independent lives.
This year alone, in Ireland, Rehab will train 5,000 people, many of whom require additional supports, and set them on the path to further education, training and employment. Almost 470 people were placed in jobs in 2012, and we continue to support 200 people who use our services in part-time employment, while directly employing a further 300 people with disabilities in our commercial division.
The people who currently use our services include young people and adults with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities, people with mental health difficulties, people with autism and people with an acquired brain injury. A range of essential services are also provided to older people, carers and others who are marginalised.
Every year, more than 80,000 people and their families benefit from the supports provided by Rehab in over 200 locations. Rehab works to influence leaders and policymakers to deliver positive change in the lives of the people who access our services, and has consultative status as a non-Governmental organisation at the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
