Crann, established in 2014, is a registered charity based in Ovens County Cork. It provides evidence based, high quality services and supports for children, adults and families living with neuro–physical disabilities. Its services are focused on, but not limited to, people who have Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus, Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, Childhood stroke and Spinal Cord Injury.
The Crann Model of Care, based on the Ascend Two–Generation approach, places the family at the centre of a range of supports where services are delivered to each family member, either at the same time or separately. The organisation believes that by supporting the whole family it can help the child or adult with a disability and the whole family to thrive.
Most stakeholders who engaged in services at Crann experienced highly valuable outcomes. Using the principles of SROI, this analysis found that the social return ratio was calculated at €4.05 for every €1.00 invested. Sensitivity analysis revealed that the social return likely appears in a range between €3.65 to €4.50.
