What is Healthy Communities?
Special Olympics Ireland supports the global vision to create a world where people with intellectual disabilities have the same opportunities and access to health care as people without intellectual disabilities.
Being healthy is so much more than being just physically active. Special Olympics Ireland health and wellbeing programmes work to educate, motivate and empower athletes to achieve their full health potential.
Our mission is to improve the lives of people with an intellectual disability living in Ireland on and off the sports field.
