About Us

What We Do!

Limerick City Build (LCB) is a social enterprise initiative.

Limerick City Build (LCB) is a social enterprise initiative formed to create employment pathways for economically marginalized and socially excluded people in Limerick City. A unique feature of LCB is its learning-by-doing approach in which our participants learn marketable skills in building and related occupations.

This learning takes place in a supportive environment where each person is prepared for employment and self-employment through combined training in hard and soft skills.

LCB takes an integrated holistic approach to preparing clients for entry to the workforce. An approach to service delivery and service development that ensures that service systems are developed in partnership with our clients and the formal economy with the aim of enabling them to remain economically active in the long term.
