NOW Group, the all-Ireland based social enterprise supporting people with intellectual disabilities and Autism into jobs with a future, welcomed Lord Mayor of Dublin to its base at Loaf Café in Kilmainham last week.

During the visit, Lord Mayor, Daithí de Róiste, received an update from NOW Group’s senior leadership team on the range of services they provide. 

He met with Amy Dowley and Giuditta Muffolini, local programme participants who are completing their placements at Loaf Café. 

“I have heard great things about NOW Group and their fantastic JAM Card, so it was a pleasure to be able to visit their vibrant Café in Kilmainham and learn more about their training and employment services,” said Lord Mayor Daithí de Róiste.

“I’m really impressed by the work they do and by the organisation’s ambitious plans to transform the lives of many people living with Autism and intellectual disabilities in Dublin and across Ireland.

“I am committed to making Dublin the world’s first Autism friendly city and organisations like NOW Group will be instrumental in helping us to achieve that goal. 

“I look forward to working with the team in the near future and meeting more inspirational people like Amy and Giuditta.”

The NOW Group employment organisation is currently delivering digital and catering employment academies in Dublin, with plans to expand to 25 employment academies within the next five years, aiming to enhance skills for over 1,000 participants.
