The HSE is to become the service provider at Cregg House in Sligo. Cregg House is a residential centre in Ballincar, Co. Sligo for people with an intellectual disability.
Last June Wisdom Services announced they could no longer provide the level of service needed at the facility due to a €1.3 million cut in funding from the HSE. Wisdom Services say the HSE have decided that they will be the alternative provider of services from 1st July. Wisdom Services offered a service to approximately 200 individuals with an intellectual disability, their families and advocates.
The Daughters of Wisdom have been providing services for those with intellectual disabilities at Cregg House since 1955.
