Welcome to the team


We are happy to welcome Lauren Ryan, a 3rd yr Psychology student from DCU who has joined the team to complete a 14 week Internship with us. The work placement is an integral part of her course.

Lauren has a keen interest in working in the voluntary sector after completing of her degree. She has already been involved in Dublin based community development programmes focused on improving community and educational involvement of children.

She is excited to be involved with Making Connections to get a feel for how theory and principles can be applied in a practical setting. “ I feel I am going to gain invaluable experience during my placement with a charity like Making Connections which is clearly providing such a wonderful service to a wide range of needs among older people in the local Community.”
