On behalf of Judith and myself, we would like to welcome you to our website. We hope that it provides you with the appropriate information and we hope that we can be of service to you. Leading an organisation like Clanrye is both a privilege and an honour and we feel immense pride and gratitude to our team who go above and beyond their roles in carrying out the mission and the ethos of the organisation, “We Care.”
Like all organisations in the voluntary and community sector
we continuously seek funds to provide better services to the community and
continue to innovate using imaginative and creative approaches to look after
the health and wellbeing of those we serve. Given the current challenging
environment and the onset of “Brexit” we would like to thank you for your
support and appeal to you to work with us to
advocate on behalf of the most disadvantaged from our communities to
ensure vital services continue to be a priority to those in government.
Clanrye Group was established in Newry in 1982, named after the Clanrye River which runs through the City and forms the historic border between County Down and County Armagh. Originally named Clanrye's Community Workshop with premises in Canal Street the mission was clear from day one - to tackle disadvantage and improve skills and employment for all. Although our name may have changed since inception our purpose has not and for the past 36 years we have been providing quality training, accredited qualifications and employment opportunities to individuals furthest removed from the labour market.
