Better Start Access and Inclusion Model (AIM)

What is AIM?

The Better Start Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) is a model of supports designed to ensure that children with disabilities can access the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) programme. Its goal is to empower service providers to deliver an inclusive pre-school experience, ensuring that every child can fully participate in the ECCE programme and reap the benefits of quality early years care and education.

Giving in Collaboration

The Childhood Development Initiative has been awarded €20,000 under one of The Community Foundation for Ireland’s Impact grants for 2015- 2016 in collaboration with The Katharine Howard Foundation.
The Community Foundation for Ireland realises the importance of collaborating with other trusts and foundations to provide large scale impact for projects and social issue areas that often go under funded. Through collaborating with similar organisations both in Ireland and internationally innovative solutions can be piloted with the aspiration to role projects out on a larger scale. One such initiative is the collaboration between The Community Foundation for Ireland and the Katharine Howard Foundation, read HERE for the full story on how working together can be a solution to fund projects for hard to reach beneficiaries.
