Your input as customer, investor or supporter enables us to provide training, skills, recognised qualifications and work opportunities for long-term unemployed people and people who are marginalised.
We focus on providing top quality products, service and customer care to the hundreds of B2B and B2C customers that we serve through our two commercial businesses, Shamrock Rosettes and Speedpak.
These operations generate approximately 50% of our income through delivering contracted services and selling products in a competitive marketplace while providing a real commercial working environment for our trainees.
Our customers include Bewleys, Quertee, Zeus, Bunzl, TP Whelehan, Clondalkin Pharma, Johnson & Johnson, RDS Dublin Horse Show, Irish Pony Club, Tullamore Show and the Irish Kennel Club.
Our public investors include the Irish Department of Social Protection and POBAL for whom we are contracted to provide labour market and wage subsidy programmes. The Northside Partnership, who founded Speedpak, contract us to provide specialist training and support.
Speedpak benefits from the generosity of a number of primary investors who provide key financial support and loan finance for specific expenditure and programmes. We work with these companies to form a mutually beneficial relationship whereby they achieve their social ambitions through our impact.
