KPMG people work with individuals and community groups to help make these areas a better place in which to live.
Amongst our flagship projects is Project Bright to get our people more involved in Corporate Citizenship initiatives. Each October we invite submissions from our employees to come up with bright ideas to help address local social and environmental issues with the winning team travelling One Young World every year. Winning projects include maths training with disadvantaged children in local schools, teaching entrepreneurial skills to teenagers in adjacent communities and music programmes with disabled children in the Central Remedial Clinic Clontarf.
We work with Jobcare helping the long term unemployed gain the confidence, skills and knowledge to find and keep meaningful employment and have developed a Get Cents programme with the North Wall Community Training Centre to provide educational courses on basic personal financial management for early school leavers.
