The Ireland Funds Flagship Grant Awarded to the TCPID

Flagship Grant support from The Ireland Funds will allow the TCPID to develop a Graduate Internship Programme, extending on the two-year Certificate in Arts, Science and Inclusive Applied Practice to include a third year of employment internship experiences. This will ultimately enable people with intellectual disabilities to compete for employment on a more equal level to their non-disabled peers and, as a result, to lead more independent lives.

The Ireland Funds is a global philanthropic network established in 1976 to promote and support peace, culture, education and community development throughout the island of Ireland, and Irish-related causes around the world. With chapters in 12 countries,The Ireland Funds has raised over $600 million for deserving causes in Ireland and beyond, benefiting more than 3,200 different organizations.
