Key to the delivery of our services is our unique model of Integrated Service Delivery (ISD):

ISD Model

LWL, throughout its 26 years in existence has identified key barriers to women’s full participation in society, specifically experienced by women in Longford. These include rural isolation, experience of domestic violence, lack of access to childcare and transport and lack of third level opportunities in Longford.
