About Daffodil Care Services


Daffodil Care Services is one of Irelands leading social care service providers.


Launching our first residential service in 2008, we have since developed a range of service offerings providing a continuum of care through residential and community based services.


Daffodil Care offers a range of residential and community based services through a national network of registered children’s residential centres, semi-independent residential care and community based outreach support.



Ethos and Philosophy

Daffodil Care has adopted a positive focused ethos as espoused by Reclaiming Youth International, Circle of Courage, Response Abilities Pathways® (RAP), Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) and Daily Life Events® (DLE).


In addition, we believe that everyone has the ability to change; we see problems as opportunities to learn, develop and grow. All Young People and their families have strengths and skills that can be nurtured and we will work to support these strengths.



Mission Statement

Daffodil Care Services is committed to providing a quality driven therapeutic residential and outreach service to vulnerable Young People and their families. We will achieve this by listening actively to Young People and families, comprehensive multi-disciplinary assessment, treatment and team guidance, embracing the concepts of trust, respect, understanding and empowerment, devising effective individualised therapeutic interventions which focus on strengths, resiliencies, and relationships.
