Welcome to the VRA – Irish Network, we hope you will join us and build this network of professionals across the island of Ireland to promote the professional knowledge, attitudes and skills of vocational rehabilitation practitioners.
The VRA Irish Network held an initial exploratory meeting in December 2020 with 18 attendees and concluded with an agreement on the need for a network to serve the island of Ireland. It is now holding regular monthly meetings on zoom and hopes to hold face to face meetings in the future.
This network operates under the umbrella of the VRA UK where core communications functions will be coordinated. It will perform similar functions as the VRA UK – focussing on activities, resources and events for all of Ireland.
Networks by their nature facilitate contact amongst people who share common passions, interests, and career paths. Networks can also lead to lasting friendships because people support each other – and this is what is going to be more important than ever before as we navigate 2021.
Mary Finn who is based in Galway and is a Professional Member of the VRA UK is the Network Coordinator. To find out more about the network please contact us or register for one of our events.
From September 2021 the network will meet on the second Thursday of the month on zoom but hopes to hold some Information about upcoming meetings can be found in the events section and there is no charge to attend. Non members are welcome and the network regularly welcomes visitors from other countries even as far afield as Canada.
