Training Links 2022 Results Are Out!

Posted on 12 Jul 2022

The Training Links 2022 results are out! Congratulations to the networks that were successful! This year, 10 new Training Links networks have been awarded a grant. 

The total fund this year was €270,000.00. Grants were provided to the value of between €10,000.00 - €40,000.00.

The 10 successful Training Networks are made up of 119 member organisations. Between them, they address important and diverse training needs. Here is a quick outline of the work of four of our networks:

The Outdoor Therapeutic Activity Providers Network are a group of adventure therapy and outdoor developmental organisations delivering a range of social care focused activities in nature.

Ireland's Sustainable Hubs Network’s goal is to educate and promote sustainability activities in enterprise hub locations nationally.

The West Cork Violence Against Women Network’s goal is to build the capacity of community and voluntary groups to provide an appropriate, accessible and effective response to sexual violence which is trauma informed and survivor led. 

The Canal Communities Anti-Racism Training Network will challenge racism by providing the appropriate training for staff and volunteers so that it is embedded in their work and becomes part of community practice.

See the full list of networks in the table below.
