A message from our sponsor, the Rehab Group
'There is a pathway to employment for each person' - Angela Kerins, Chief Executive, Rehab Group

Angela Kerins, chief executive, the Rehab GroupEmployment provides an important valued social role for us all.

It is also key to enabling people with disabilities to play an active role in their local community, to build lasting relationships and above all to earn an income.

There is a pathway to employment for each person.

Many people will make this journey alone but others, such as some people with disabilities, require additional supports. This pathway will likely combine a range of inputs including rehabilitative and vocational training, education, job coaching as well as well as ongoing supports in employment.

Ancient Burren landscape inspires delegate gift

The artists, all clients of EmployAbility Clare, came together to design an Irish gift for conference delegates in the Burren, Co. Clare, where the distinctive and ancient, limestone landscape has long served as an inspiration for both Irish and international artists.  


A documentary on the project, with music provided by popular Irish folk-rock artist Luka Bloom, will be debuted at the conference.
