A TOTAL of 102 new jobs have been generated from over €10m investment through The Rehab Group.

The organisation has secured a host of new business opportunities across Ireland, Poland, the Netherlands and the UK.

And the expansion will allow the not-for-profit group to increase the number of people to whom it provide services and enhance the range of supports

Chief Executive Angela Kerrins said the move was a major milestone in the group's growth strategy.

"These new projects will contribute greatly to our mission by not only benefiting people with disabilities and disadvantaged groups in the countries in which we operate, but also by supporting other Rehab Group services and initiatives through income earned from these new activities," said Kerrins.

In Ireland, this will be in the form of expanded training and learning support services aimed at equipping people to enter or return to the workforce. It will also be involved in supporting university students who require learning supports, and will also provide new services to people with Aspergers Syndrome.

In the UK, the company specialises in in-work support,including training and apprenticeships, for 16-18 year olds.

Further afield, Rehab has linked up logistics for IT and electronic recycling in Poland and the Netherlands respectively.
