DCU Ability

How it works



DCU Ability helps young people to find suitable education, training and employment and we want to make at least 100 young people with disabilities more employable by supporting them to gain skills and experience they individually want, to allow them to be job ready. DCU Ability offers free training and support but you must be 18 to 29 years old, have a disability and meet one of the following requirements:


    • You are getting a disability allowance, invalidity pension or illness benefit for more than three months; or
    • You are an existing service user or client of a disability organisation that is part of the Ability Programme; and you were referred by relevant organisation or service that support people with disabilities to one of the 27 organisations that is part of the Ability Programme.
