John Mulcahy MBE
John founded KIDS in the late 1960s as an organisation providing holidays for disabled children. He soon realised that the children and their families needed ongoing support, and KIDS quickly became a leader in providing Portage and respite services and inclusive nurseries. He was one of the first people to understand that services to disabled children should be provided in consultation with their parent or carer, and this has been the keynote of KIDS for 40 years. John received the MBE for his work with disabled children and is now Vice President of KIDS.
