Driver - Scoil Aislinn 

04 September 2014
A Volunteer is required to drive our 16 seater school bus on daily trips to the swimming pool, horse riding and class educational visits. The hours would be from 11.30 to 1 pm and 1.30 to 3 pm.
 
The driver must have a D/D1 full clean driving licence and a pleasant outing personality.  
 
The volunteer will be given an opportunity to spend time with children who have Autism and complex needs and observe the difficulties and challenges they are faced with.

Cope Foundation’s Annual Golf Classic took place on Tuesday 26th & Wednesday 27th August 2014 at Rathsallagh Golf Club, Co Wicklow
Over 100 teams participated over the two days to raise money for Cope Foundation and to date this Annual Golf Classic has raised in excess of €1.5m. 
 
We are sad to say that Mr. Frank O’ Flynn (pictured), who has been the main driving force behind the event for the past 18 years, decided to retire from the event this year.

Cope Foundation supports over 2,300 people with intellectual disabilities and/or autism and their families in Cork City and County. We know that together we can do great things. We support people in their local community to take part in education, training, employment, leisure, sports and the arts. We have specialised health and interdisciplinary teams that offer a range of therapies. We work with people of every ability and always try to put the person at the centre of everything we do. We offer housing support to people who might need it. We work together to create opportunities for each person we support and respond to their needs now and into the future.
 
Last year a group of over 30 people we support and staff took part in the Marathon together.
