Arklap, a sheltered work unit, located in Crogan industrial estate in Arklow County Wicklow provides a day service for thirteen people. Arklap has been in existence for approx. twenty-one years. The ¬rst ten of which the unit was located on the North quay in Arklow. Clients may attend Arklap either on work placement or as a result of 'Personal Outcomes' requests. Over the past number of years Arklap manufactured garden fencing and related products supplying large organisations such as Topline Hardware. Today, production continues at a lower level. There is now a strong emphasis on personal interest activities and projects. While physical activities have always been promoted on the unit, we have undertaken a more formal approach in this area. Some physical activities are now tied into FETAC certi¬cation which not only provides structure but also gives a sense of achievement.Clients are continually encouraged and facilitated to participate in activities outside of the organisation, both at local level and in their home environment.

There are many great art teachers in Sunbeam that support our artists and sometimes our service-users enroll in art classes in the local community colleges. Some guys prefer to work alone and by themselves while others enjoy the supportive atmosphere that an art class gives. Our service-users enjoy the creative arts, from traditional oil painting to crafts, enamelling to woodwork.
