Coillte are proud to announce a new partnership with The Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities
The TCPID, which sits within the School of Education at Trinity College Dublin, aims to promote the inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in education and society. The core mission of the TCPID is to address the significant educational and societal barriers experienced by people with intellectual disabilities through the provision of an innovative high-quality higher education programme, enabling the transition to meaningful employment and/or further education after graduation. The TCPID works closely with a core network of business and philanthropic partners who provide essential financial and practical support, helping to promote inclusion in society for this highly marginalised group.
Speaking about the new partnership, Marie Devitt, TCPID Pathways Coordinator, said: “We are very excited about this new partnership with Coillte. We look forward to working closely with the Coillte team to develop new and interesting opportunities for our students and our graduates. Our goal is to work together with all our partners to always focus on Ability and to help to create a more inclusive society and a sense of belonging for everyone. “
Ruth D’Alton, Coillte Group HR Director, commenting on Coillte’s partnership with the Trinity Centre, said: We are delighted to announce our partnership with the Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities in the School of Education. Giving everyone the chance to contribute and participate in society has so many benefits, particularly when someone is challenged with a disability as their participation enriches us by giving us their most valuable perspective while also giving them meaning and value. It fits perfectly with the Coillte values of inclusion and respect.
