Please Help Build This New Child Development Centre For Children

Together, we can do more! Join us now to help build a National Child Development Centre where over 30,000 children will thrive over the next ten years.

We have already secured commitments of €9.6million towards the costs of this fantastic facility for children. Sensational Kids now just needs to raise over €2 million to turn this centre into reality for children. 

We have always been innovative when it comes to meeting the needs of children on waiting lists for therapy supports. Now it is time to go to the next level with a practical solution that will deliver transformational change for even more children.

A Message of Support from Award-Winning Actor Jeremy Irons

Watch A Story About You now. Narrated by award-winning actor Jeremy Irons and featuring the voices of Lucy Kennedy and Baz Ashmawy, A Story About You, tells the true story of Sensational Kids, and our plans to build a new National Child Development Centre to provide essential therapies for children in Ireland. 

Today 1 in 4 children in Ireland have a special educational need. With 70,000 children on lengthy public waiting lists for Speech & Language and Occupational Therapy, the demand for our services has never been higher. Our Child Development Centre in Kildare Town is no longer big enough to serve all the children in the region who need our help.

We have been given the green light to build a state-of-the-art National Child Development Centre on a 2.4-acre greenfield site just off the M7 motorway in Kildare Town.

With your support to help raise over €2 million, our new Child Development Centre will be able to deliver 150,000 therapy interventions over 10 years, supporting 330 children each week to thrive.

We’ve come so far

Since Sensational Kids was founded in 2007, we have already changed the lives of more than 9,000 children, saving their families more than €2 million in therapy fees. We have seen a dramatic increase in demand for our services, and with the level of demand set to continue to rise in the coming years, we aim to continue to meet the needs of our current and future children and families.  With your help, we can expand the capacity of our therapy supports for children by building this new National Child Development Centre.
