Tom Clogher (CEO) had a vision to develop a programme that could be adapted to all age groups and levels of ability. Over ten years ago this vision became reality when he started the PLUS Programme which stands for People Learning Universal Skills.

The PLUS Programme helps the young people and adults we work with to gain hand’s on experiential learning in areas such as horticulture, carpentry, independent skills and arts and Crafts. These activities create a space for young people and adults to express themselves and our goal is to empower them to become independent and gain skills for adulthood.

The PLUS Programme takes place in our main Centres which are based in Collon, Co. Louth and Mullingar, Co. Westmeath and also Tony designs activities for young people nationwide, which they can partake in with their Empowerment Plus worker, for example building bird houses.
