As workers we understand the positive impact work makes on everyone's life. It gives us a sense of purpose and achievement, a sense of identity, and financial security. Work helps us meet and mix with people outside of our social circle who can be very different to us, but whom we learn to work with and develop common ground. Sometimes we meet people at work that we build lasting friendships with. Work gives us a stronger sense of being part of the communities we live in.
Because we know the big contribution people with disabilities can make to the local economy, we are continually looking for more Galway employers to include employees with disabilities in their workplaces. In doing so, they will develop stronger organisations that are better able to compete within their sector, while helping people with disabilities bridge the gap and cross the divide from unemployment, to employment.
