EU Project Experience

No experience

This organisation is new to EU funding and will be supported by the Access Europe team.

EU Funding Goals

We're looking to begin exploring EU Funding opportunities as our organisation continues to grow.

In the near-term, we would be looking for similar-minded organisations to work alongside ourselves on projects relating to our focus area: young people with intellectual disabilities (ID).

More specifically, organisations that work within the sphere of digital inclusion would be ideal, as our organisation carries-out its programming via our bespoke digital learning platform, My Blossom Channel. Through this, we've managed to develop fully-accessible online learning for people with ID - something that doesn't exist in Ireland and is incredible scarce worldwide.

Strenghts

We have a fantastic, committed team who are deeply passionate about what we do.

We also have a good amount of experience in securing grants domestically, as we have received large grants from Pobal, IYF, CDETB, the Community Foundation, the National Lottery, the Ireland Funds, Dublin City Council and other corporate & private bodies.

Further to this, we also have phenomenal participants that are eager to participate by contributing their insights, contributing to media pieces and participating in focus groups.
