Standards Of Excellence
We put our clients at the centre of everything we do and we are focused on our stakeholders
In 2002, ABI Ireland became the first service provider in the Republic of Ireland to be CARF-accredited. CARF accreditation is a prestigious and internationally recognised quality mark which signals that the services we provide meet or exceed international best practice. On the 10th November 2015 ABI Ireland was issued with CARF accreditation until November 2018 based on its recent survey.
CARF is the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Services. It is an independent, not-for-profit organisation which assesses the facilities and services provided by a wide range of organisations providing rehabilitation.
ABI Ireland’s Neuro rehabilitation residential services are registered with the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) and are monitored under the Health Act 2007 (Care and support of residents in designated centres for persons (children and adults) with disabilities) regulations 2013.
Top of the class
CARF accredits organisations for three-year blocks. In 2006, 2009, 2012 and again in 2015 ABI Ireland achieved the highest level of CARF accreditation in acquired brain injury residential rehabilitation services, long-term residential services and home and community rehabilitation services. In the 2015 accreditation letter CARF had this to say about ABI Ireland "This achievement is an indication of your organisation's dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served".

Achieving CARF accreditation sets ABI Ireland apart and is an assurance to all stakeholders that we are a client-centred, stakeholder-focused and outcome based quality service
