ABOUT ARCH CLUBS
A Bit of Background about Us!
An Arch Club is a social club for people of all ages with an intellectual disability. It is a safe space for them to develop their social and interpersonal skills, learn real world skills, make friends and just have fun!
Arch club was founded in 1976 by a small group of parents in Dublin, looking for a social outlet for their children. Since then we have grown to a number of clubs throughout Ireland!
Many of our clubs offer different activities ranging from having tea and chats to helping them engage in different sports! (Please check with your local club as to what activities they offer)
We currently have 40 clubs in 15 different counties!
Our aim is to have a club in every county!
Please note that our clubs are not operating as normal due to Covid-19 restrictions. Many clubs are taking a break and some are operating via Zoom. Please contact your local club to see what they are doing.
