Disability Awareness Training Support Scheme
Irish Association of Supported Employment (IASE): This scheme provides funding for disability awareness training for staff and management. Your local supported employment agency can help with accessing this funding and sourcing the training.
The training will provide a greater understanding and awareness in the area of disability and any legislation that may apply in this area.
The training will also address questions or concerns employers and their employees may have about working with, or managing, people with disabilities.
Grants cover 90 per cent of eligible training costs up to a maximum of €20,000 in the first year and 80 per cent in the second year.
