BJC Involvement with EU projects

The involvement of staff in EU Projects is a valuable experience. There is a high degree of transfer of learning from the projects and many relationships have been developed and sustained through the work of these Partnerships. One of the main sources of EU funding was the Leonardo da Vinci Programme, managed in Ireland by Leargas. It must be acknowledged that over the years the Leargas staff have provided constructive and indispensable support to enable the BJC to develop the expertise to manage EU programmes.

One of the hardest tasks to achieve is the “mainstreaming” of good practice developed in the EU programmes into our day to day work. In this regard the BJC has made determined efforts to ensure the lessons and work of the EU Projects improved the delivery of services and the way we work with clients. For example the psychometric web tools developed in the EGUIDE and INFORM Projects are now used daily by the staff in the BJC, Ballyfermot Partnership/LESN, and in Belfast, Spain, Germany and Slovenia.

The inter-agency process, profiling tool and website developed as part of the Equal Youth Project is now part of the way agencies work together in Ballymun. The support of the FAS Social Inclusion Unit must be acknowledged in this. The BJC is also working with the DSP to transfer the lessons of the Equal Youth Project to Limerick as well as the EGUIDE and INFORM guidance tools. These are only some of the examples of the successful transfer of the lessons from the EU partnerships the BJC has developed over the last number of years.

Our Current Projects we are either Co-ordinating or a Partner in are funded by Erasamus + programme of the European Union and Europe for Citizens Programme.

Our Partner Projects

Over the years the BJC has made applications to EU funds in order to access the financial resources to test new ideas and ways of working. The EU work is developed in partnership with organisations in other European countries, some of which are listed below:
