Making a Donation to Shine

Why choose Shine?


At the Shine Centre we passionately believe that every child regardless of their ability has to be given the opportunity to realise their full potential. Through early intervention and ongoing programmes allied to the  commitment of both our families and our staff we strive to give every child that opportunity. We work with children and adolescents aged between 3 years and 16 years of age. These children have shown time after time that they can grow and develop both socially and academically when they get an opportunity to do so. The Shine Centre also works with  parents, carers and educators. The children in our services come from across Cork City and County.


We work in the key intervention window where we can have a hugely positive impact on the development of our children and give them the opportunity to develop the key skills they need to grow and develops. Early intervention is vital in the development of an autistic child and your donation can have a tangible impact and positively affect their lives and that of their family for many years to come.

When we ask someone to donate to the Shine Centre, we ask them to “Brighten the Future” for a child with autism. If you make a donation you will help us to light the way for one of our children and brighten their future.

Where does your money go?
