OPAS CE Scheme Promotional Video
11th June 2021
Offaly Centre for Independent Living (OCIL) sponsors a Community Employment Scheme (CE) which is known as Offaly Personal Assistant Services.
Our CE provides practical and personal support to people living with disabilities, in the community, throughout the counties of Offaly and Laois. We have a number of Personal Assistants who call to people daily, supporting them in many ways such as accompanying them to appointments, social events, engaging in their hobbies or some light housework. We also have administration staff that help keep our service running from an operational perspective.
If you are curious about CE take a look at the following video link, produced by the Department of Social Protection which includes contribution by people participating on CE and CE Supervisors. It outlines and highlights the value of CE for all engaged with them. Community Employment - INTREO on Vimeo
