  • Beyond Limits Youth Advisors Coordinator

Beyond Limits; Empowering Young People with Disabilities, was an event first run by the OCO in 2019. Almost 1,000 people travelled to Croke Park, Dublin for the first large-scale fully accessible event created for children with disabilities.

Beyond Limits is an opportunity for children and young people with disabilities to talk about the issues important to them, to hear from other people with disabilities about their experiences and achievements, and to learn about technology or services available to children with disabilities.

The Ombudsman for Children’s Office is seeking a person/organisation who can work with us to support, coordinate, resource and facilitate the Beyond Limits Youth Advisors Group. This group will be made up of eight young people with various disabilities.

The BL Youth Advisors will be vital in organising Beyond Limits 2022. It is important that this event is designed with the needs of young people in mind, and that the content is informed by what young people themselves want to see, experience and learn about.

The deadline for applications for this contract is 30th November 2021.
