Lakers host event for IMPACT job seekers


Lakers Club was the location of a recent event in Bray on a new employment service for people with disabilities.

he meet and greet event was held at the Lakers Social and Recreational Club to provide information about the new IMPACT employment initiative for people with disabilities.

The IMPACT team was on hand to chat with people over a cup of tea and explain what they can offer. About sixty job seekers took part in the event.

“There’s been a lot of excitement about the place,” says IMPACT coordinator Orla Butler. “We are grateful to the Lakers for providing their wonderful center. It was really great to talk to so many local people about our new service. »

IMPACT helps people with disabilities to improve their skills, find secure paid employment, advance in their careers or start their own business. The service is open to people aged 18 and over living in Bray or North Wicklow and receiving Disability Allowance.

In addition to one-on-one support, they have a series of free online workshops coming up – the next is on interview techniques scheduled for April 13.

Employers can also benefit from the service, with supports available to help make their workforce more inclusive.

IMPACT is managed by a consortium of local organizations, led by the Bray Area Partnership.
