Posted on 19 Oct 2021 Last updated on 21 Oct 2021

Remember Us provides a unique social outlet to people with special needs and their families in the North Fingal region. Although based in Balbriggan, our members come from areas such as Santry, Clontarf, Swords, Malahide, Portmarnock, Lusk, Rush, Skerries, Balbriggan, Bettystown, Ashbourne, Drogheda etc. It is the families that are the members; this means that not only the individual with special needs benefits from our group but their parents/carers and siblings too.
