Founded in 2010, Blossom Ireland provides skills based training for young people with an intellectual disability aged 14 and above to prepare for life as an adult. This includes bespoke support, advocacy and information for both the young person and their family during important transition periods in their life.
Our educational programmes are carried out on our online learning platform, My Blossom Channel, which is Ireland’s first fully-accessible learning platform for young people with intellectual disabilities. Additionally, we offer in-person education programmes through our national workshop series.
Our vision is that all young people with intellectual disabilities are appropriately supported during all key transitions in life.
Our mission is to develop and deliver accessible, practical and impactful transition support programmes.
To date, we have empowered over 500 families across Ireland. Learn more about the impact of our lifechanging programmes:
