The Learning Hub ensures a safe and accessible physical environment for over 300 registered students with disabilities, learning difficulties, and ongoing health conditions to receive Academic support, IT skills support, Assistive technology, Exam accommodations, access to Guidance, the Sensory Room, the Sensory Pod and Ulreeka, the DCFE Community Dog.

We wouldn't have Ulreeka without the help of the amazing breeders, raisers and trainers at Irish Guide Dogs and we thought it was time to give something back.
