Since 1892, The Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul have worked to provide care, education and training for people with intellectual disabilities. Over this period the Daughters provided a seamless partnership of care for people from their youngest years through to old age. Their work is ultimately about people, their dignity and their quality of life.

In 2022, Avista (previously the Daughters of Charity Disability Support Services) supported over 3,000 individuals across Dublin, Limerick, North Tipperary and Offaly. Respect supports Avista by assisting in capital projects to improve the lives of the supported individuals within the care of Avista. In 2024, Respect is working to raise capital funding for the upcoming Children’s Respite House to be built in Lisnagry, Limerick.
