ABILITY PROGRAMME

YWIT has recently been awarded an Ability programme .The Ability Programme promotes employment prospects and meaningful social roles for young people with disabilities. Ability is co-financed by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.

The Ability programme aims to support young people from Co Tipperary with a diagnosis of a disability in which their disability may impact their employ-ability, train-ability and 21st century skills.  These young people are furthest from the labour market and are experiencing challenges socially, functionally and educationally. 

The key aim for the intended target group is to give young people an opportunity to develop practical and functional skills which enable them to participate fully in their communities. The main focus of the work is to develop and implement interventions for young people (15-24) in need of employability support, who have a diagnosis of ASD, a mental health condition, a learning disability or Hidden disability.
