Our company was established as a Consortium in June 2001 with members from each of the main disability organisations in Limerick. In March of 2004 Work Access Ltd (as it was previously known) was setup as a separate company to run many services. The service is part of the Department of Social Protection Sponsored National Supported Employment Programme and there are 23 similar groups around the country.
EmployAbility Limerick is a registered charity. CHY 16152
Our Board consists of representatives from a variety of other disability groups, mental health services as well as local employers. It has always been important to us that we try to maintain representation from all disciplines across the disability, health and business sectors on our board.
We are very committed to providing a professional employment service for people who have suffered from illness, injury or a disability and to also tend to local business recruitment needs throughout Limerick city and county.
Because we know the big contribution people with disabilities can make to the local economy, we are continually looking for more employers to promote equal opportunities and bridge the gap by including employees with disabilities in their workplaces.
A Message from the Chairperson
Our goal at EmployAbility Limerick is to assist and support our clients who have an injury, illness or a disability in returning to work and maintaining employment. Outside of the financial independence of receiving a regular wage, there are many other benefits of work. It gives us a sense of identity and personal achievement, keeps us busy and mentally active learning new skills, meeting people, socialising and generally leads to a more fulfilling and healthier life.
Our job coaches are there to support you
a. if you wish to get a job, possibly after a period of unemployment
b. return to work after illness or injury
c. you have a special need which needs accommodating within the work environment.
Why not contact us here at EmployAbility Limerick, and see what we can do for you. It might be a step in the right direction to improved financial, physical and mental well being.
