We have all had moments when we have experienced the feeling of exclusion. Imagine living with that feeling whilst dealing with life threatening conditions, learning and physical difficulties. People with a learning disability are often excluded from the workplace and often feel undervalued. By providing a platform to showcase skills, by practising inclusion and acceptance, ARTHOUSE Meath challenges prejudices that people living with severe epilepsy, learning and physical disabilities often experience.
In order to offer the high standard of care to 70 clients within the art sessions and selling in the shop, there is always a senior carer and art instructor on hand. To make the business sustainable we always need additional monies above current sales. Whilst 100% of sales revenue goes into the project for development, money from sales doesn’t cover the cost of people we help.
