Health Service Executive (HSE)

About us

The HSE delivers health and personal social services to all children and families living in Ireland. Some of these services are for families of children with disabilities. The HSE either delivers services directly or other organisations deliver services for the HSE. For example, some early services are provided by various voluntary organisations and some are provided by the HSE community services.
