This service is available in Dublin, Wicklow and Kildare
Written by

EVE is a HSE service that aims to provide community-based services for people living with mental health difficulties or disabilities of various kinds. 

EVE services are provided through a network of services in 21 locations across Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow. The services include training opportunities, support with recovery, and clubhouses. Clubhouses are local community organisations that support and assist people with mental health difficulties to live healthy, stable lives.

What services does EVE offer?

EVE offers support services for people with:

  • Mental health difficulties
  • Intellectual difficulties
  • Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Physical disabilities
  • Sensory disabilities

Vocational Training

EVE provides vocational training on behalf of SOLAS and the Education Training Board. Vocational training means getting certified in a particular skill that will be useful in work. EVE training includes some career planning and personal development content. You will need to be registered with SOLAS before applying. 

Recovery plans

EVE can support you with recovery for those experiencing mental health difficulties, and also with setting personal development goals to develop personal resources and access community supports. Find our more about mental health recovery and their personal development support.


Clubhouses are member-led community organisations that help people with mental health difficulties. They offer life-long membership to support you in living a fulfilling and productive life on your own terms. You can find your local clubhouse here.

Community Based Services – HUB

EVE is currently test-running three “HUB” programmes. These are based on helping individuals grow and develop their positive strengths rather than focusing on whatever may be holding them back. A key worker is assigned to each person participating to offer support and help deal with service providers where necessary. They’ll help find opportunities for work and leisure activities within the local community based on what your real goals and aspirations. You can find contact details for your local HUB here
