2022 is already shaping-up to be our most impactful year yet! In late-2020, we launched My Blossom Channel, our award-winning learning platform – Ireland’s first and only fully-accessible digital learning platform for people with intellectual disabilities! Since then, we’ve been able to expand our services across Ireland, seeing a huge increase in demand for our programmes.
To kick things off this year, we’ll be launching THREE new programmes on My Blossom Channel! The first will be geared towards companies and will provide training on developing inclusive and equitable workplaces. The second and third courses will be designed for our participants and focus respectively on developing skills needed for the workplace and getting ready for further/higher education. We’re so excited to be launching these new programmes and can’t wait to see their impact on our community!
Is your workplace looking to partner with an innovative Irish charity? Look no further! Blossom Ireland are establishing brand-new partnerships throughout 2022 to allow us to continue scaling-up our impact to meet demand. Our newest partnerships include the Irish Life Dublin Marathon, Rethink Ireland, BT Ireland, Children’s Books Ireland and much more! These partnerships will enable us to continually improve the quality of our programmes and pursue our goal of reaching 1 in 10 young people in Ireland in the next three years.
What else is on this year?
With all of the excitement of upcoming courses, don’t forget that we already have two incredible programmes on My Blossom Channel: Uniquely Me and Assertiveness. Recruitment for these is open and spaces are filling up quickly! Visit blossomireland.ie/my-blossom-channel/ to learn more and sign-up.
Any fundraising news?
We’re glad you asked! After the success of our Just Like You campaign in December, we’ll have a number of new and exciting campaigns and initiatives ongoing this year. Plus, fingers crossed that 2022 sees the return of in-person events! We’ve missed seeing our supporters and can’t wait for the next event.
In the meantime, you can #SupportBlossom by donating on our website, setting-up a direct debit, organising a fundraiser or buying one of our fab plant-able cards! For more information, check out all-things-fundraising here: blossomireland.ie/fundraising/.
