Employment Grants and Supports

There are a number of grants and supports available to employers who wish to include and integrate employees with disabilities into their workforce; with our colleagues in the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection we can advise and assist you in applying for these grants.

The following is a list of the most frequently used:
