Why we exist

Supporting adults & children in the NRH on their unique rehabilitation journey

What we do:

The NRH Foundation was established in 1983.  The NRH Foundation is the registered charity dedicated to raising vital funds for the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH), for adults and children. The role of the NRH Foundation has never been more important as it is today to the NRH. There are many worthy and essential projects that impact on patient care in need of funding at the NRH.

In this website you will be able to read about the various fundraising activities we are involved in, as well as providing information on some of the different projects we have been able to fund to date due to the generosity of all our supporters and donors. Funds raised through the NRH Foundation have provided and will continue to provide life-changing support to the NRH patients, now and into the future.

We would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the NRH Foundation, to thank you for taking an interest in the work of the NRH Foundation.  Without the generosity of our supporters and donors, we would not be in the position to make such a difference in the lives of the patients within the NRH.

We are constantly looking for new and exciting ways to raise funds and for volunteers to help with our work. Every contribution to our work, small or large, is gratefully received and does make a difference. Thank you for your compassion and goodwill.

The NRH:

The NRH is the only service of its type in the country, a fully publicly funded hospital (with no private/semi-private beds), providing high quality care and treatment to patients on the basis of clinical need.

The NRH Dún Laoghaire is the only Hospital in Ireland providing complex medical specialist rehabilitation services for the national population.  The Hospital provides a comprehensive range of specialist rehabilitation services to children and adults who as a result of accident, illness or injury, require rehabilitation services in the following areas of specialty:

  • Paediatric Family Centred Rehabilitation
  • The Brain Injury Programme (including Stroke)
  • The Spinal Injury Programme
  • Prosthetic, Orthotic and Limb Absence Rehabilitation

How the NRH Helps:

Rehabilitation is a lifelong investment in people; it is an educational process of active change by which a person learns the knowledge and skills needed to enable them to participate meaningfully again in family and community life.  The NRH strives to minimise the impact of a person’s disability and optimise their potential, whilst also helping their families too.
