Description:
During the year over 28,000 clients accessed services throughout the Group. These services were delivered by over 1.800 staff in I 18 locations across Ireland and the UK. Year-end client occupancy figures of 10,622 (1999 - 9.019) were up by 15% on the previous year. This growth in services primarily arose in the UK. In 2000 Ireland saw the transfer of vocational training and employment services for people with disabilities from the Department of Health and Children into FAS. the national training agency. Credit is due to department officials and FAS for their handling of th is transition. The Group's three year capital programme. grant aided by the European Regional Development Fund. came to an end in 2000. The Group continues to make progress with the Department of Health in addressing the issue of proper funding for the 1000 or so long-term clients in its sheltered work services. A significant amount of planning has gone into how the Group can improve these services and we are hoping to see these enhancements affecting services in 200l. We are encouraged by the Minister's continuing support and commitment to help us in this regard. Within Ireland the Rehab Group is a strong supporter of The Not for Profit Business Association.This association was born out of the need for a more businesslike. rather than a merely philanthropic approach to the delivery of services for people with physical and sensory disabilities. Financially the Group showed a modest surplus of IR £1.6m for the year which. given the size and scale of the organisation. represents a satisfactory outcome. With the demands for capital expenditure and other commitments. this surplus only led to a net cash inflow of IR £O.7m for the Group. We anticipate the year 200I being somewhat challenging. particularly in the UK with the hand over of a large number of our programmes to the Employment Service from the Training and Enterprise Councils. It would appear to us that the Employment Service has effectively discounted and. in some instances, totally ignored the provider base built up over a number of years. The DfEE had repeatedly stated its intention to sustain and develop the provider infrastructure. High value was to be placed on long-term stable relations. yet our experience would lead us to believe that these relationships are now being undervalued. We believe. however, that we can emerge from these difficulties to develop a close and mutually beneficial partnership with the Employment Service in the future.
