I would like to give the sincerest of thanks to all the amazing people on this team as they have relentlessly been supporting my young person from day one. He has changed, he has grown in every way and it is all because of the staff's devotion in supporting him meeting his needs.”

I don’t know where I would be right now if I didn’t come to Ivy Hill. You have saved my life. You have worked alongside me, helping me to become a better person. You have shown me that life isn’t about giving up, it’s about staying focused and that is exactly how I am leaving here today. I feel ready for the future.”

Former Placement


Ashdale's approach to managing young people's risks ‘in house’, and only utilise emergency services as a last resort, enables children to feel safe and held in their home by their team. I feel this is a big factor of success with young people’s placements.”

I would like to also say my son is at a better place now I know he is very happy, and all settled with Ashdale Care Ireland. Thanks for everything you do for him.”

Parent of Former Placement


I like that I get more support every day, staff try to work out things for me. I like how I get TV and games and have a friend in the house and it’s nice and warm and safe for me.”
