Leap is a family-led, non-profit organisation that works on behalf of children and adults with disabilities and their families. We work with people and families, their friends, supporters and allies who are in pursuit of an inclusive life.

Interested in Volunteering at our Family Leadership Weekends?

LEAP partners with families to develop a personalised support roadmap to navigate life stages without imposing its own goals or solutions. As part of that commitment we are running ‘Family Leadership Adventure Breaks’ on the 26th-28th Oct and 2nd-4th Nov in the Cavan Centre, Ballyjamesduff.
