    Quality & Capacity Building Initiative

    DESSA was successful in securing funding support for an exciting new innovative project to improve quality outcomes for children and young people who experience disability. The Capacity for Inclusion project aims to support members of the Waterford Children and Young People’s Services Committee to develop and embed inclusion related to disability equality within their work. This once off project is funded by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs under the Quality and Capacity Building Initiative supported through Dormant Accounts Funding.
