“Thomas Court Hub: Connecting from the Heart of Dublin’s Liberties, to the Minds of Our Community”
About Thomas Court
Thomas Court Hub is a centre which offers community-based Recovery services within the EVE network. A large facility; situated in the centre of one of Dublin’s oldest developments, The Liberties, Thomas Court has provided a service to individuals with mental health difficulties for 30 years. The service is responsible for the linking up of participants to activities which they will identify: educational/training opportunities, sporting pursuits, voluntary work, work experience/placements and leisure activities. Our strong team of key workers are responsible for giving support to people to engage with these services, and to advocate with and for them with service providers, if required.
Our prospectus has been developed based on goals determined by our participants, through the facilitation of their Person Centred Plan meetings hosted across 3 semesters. The overall aim of person centred planning is “good planning leading to positive changes in people’s lives and services” (Ritchie et al, 2003).
The Thomas Court Hub programme supports people who experience mental health difficulties to live their lives based on their own personal goals. Our service offers a range of supports to enable each person to live a healthier, fulfilling and independent life. We support each person to get more involved in their community and develop their natural supports. This is achieved through a combination of centre based and community based modules and activities.
“Thomas Court is committed to providing the services and the skills necessary to enable our participants to live a life of their choosing and to help each person reach their full potential”
“Programmes shall be developed in consultation with participants which will meet the identified health, social and vocational /community related needs of the people attending our service, and will focus on improving their quality of life through appropriate programmes and community integration”
