EMPOWERMENT PLUSCountry: IRELAND
Here at Empowerment Plus our focus is on “Empowering people to effectively respond to their own issues, to help instill a confidence and ability to design their own future.”
The “Plus” stands for People Learning Universal Skills. When young people and families no longer need our care and support, we try to ensure that they are equipped with the necessary skills to live happy and to their full potential.
Empowerment Plus is a Nationwide non-profit organisation with registered charitable status that works with young people and families who are at risk within their home or community. As an organisation, Empowerment Plus is committed to supporting young people, and families by providing a wraparound, needs based support.

Empowerment Plus designed their Logo, placing the words Youth, Family and Community in the “circle of support” as we believe that one cannot be empowered without support from the others. In 2020 a young person from the Aftercare team based in Limerick produced a fantastic work of art to depict what Empowerment Plus meant to her and we were inspired to incorporate this gorgeous work into our logo.
