In April each year, hundreds of individuals with disabilities throughout Ireland, including several Nua Healthcare residents are given an amazing opportunity to take part in the Job Shadow initiative, a national project bringing people with disabilities and local employers together for one day, to promote equal employment opportunities and to highlight the valuable contribution people with disabilities can and do make within the work place. Nua Healthcare would like to offer our congratulations to everybody who participated in the Job Shadow initiative, embracing the opportunity with great enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all the local businesses and individuals who supported Nua Healthcare residents during Job Shadow Day. These organisations include:
- Hire Station / Buy Cycles
- Kildare Animal Foundation
- Eco Mattress Recycling
- Supervalu Naas
- Cahill Cycles
- Lullymore Heritage Park
- Kildare Farm Foods
- Saint Vincent de Paul Blessington
- Naas Insurance
Finally, we would like to thank all Nua Healthcare staff members who worked tirelessly behind the scenes liaising with Job Shadow representatives as well as residents, in order to ensure that everyone taking part in the Job Shadow initiative had a truly memorable day. Great job guys!
