What Our Community Says
"Very grateful to all at the North Dublin area Partnership for all the compassion and kindness with helping me help myself and set up my own Sauces, juices and marinades business! From the first mention of my idea to the invaluable business mentoring I was given helped me to follow the yellow brick road of my new venture!."
"We’ve employed 3 people who are now in Full Time employment with us and are working very well. I would I think its well worth getting involved with and the majority of people I ended up interviewing seemed genuinely interested in getting employment. Always very helpful and forthright in the people they put forward for interview. We have found it a very useful resource and thank you for the help."
"In 2019 the DNP Community Grant provided us with an Arts and Crafts teacher and in the Arts and Crafts classes, the young people learned completely new skills, in painting and in the use of model clay, to make pottery. This year's grant (2020), in the face of Covid-19, has created a whole new way of providing activities for our members. To our delight, it is shaping up to raise not only the young people’s artistic skills but their digital skills as well. So, the Plough Youth Club is delighted with the marvellous contribution, of the DNP, to the youth in the Plough Youth Club."
“Finding work these days can be very challenging; I attended the Keys to Employment training sessions that were delivered via Zoom. The areas covered included; how to write a professional CV, cover letter writing, interview preparation, career planning and confidence building. Each session was full of practical tips and advice and I received individual support following the webinars. The team are extremely helpful and professional, the assistance I received from the Jobs Club team made all the difference, thanks to their support I’m now working for Tik Tok."
"I think the benefits of working in Greenview Community are getting back into a work routine and meeting new people. I have benefited in working in horticulture a profession I have always been interested in. The garden has many different aspects like growing vegetables and fruit, learning about wildlife and about carpentry. I have enjoyed my time here and I have learned a lot."
"The DNP Education Access Fund is of great benefit to those on a limited income, who are looking to improve their circumstances through training and education. With the extra costs of travel and materials on an already extremely tight budget, the DNP Education Access Fund is a most welcome support. A huge financial stress was taken off my shoulders enabling me to focus better in college. It was great knowing that you had support there if and when you needed it."
"I couldn’t fault the work of the Care & Repair Team that was carried out in my home. They tidied up every day after themselves and were always very clean and on time. They went above and beyond to ensure I was happy with the painting and other odd jobs around the house. I would have no hesitation recommending them to others."
"Poppintree Early Education Centre is a not-for-profit community childcare setting. Our ancillary workforce has been built upon and supported by the DNP for a number of years. TUS employees are invaluable to our service to say the least! Working with TUS supervisors is a great experience for all involved throughout the programme year as we are able to provide practical experience, support and training for people returning to the workforce and our service."
