Jigsaw has been awarded the European Citizen’s Prize 2022

Tuesday, 28 June 2022

The award specifically recognises the Jigsaw team’s agile response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a short space of time, we were able to continue to offer direct support to young people through a range of online services.

This prize is a reflection of the genuine commitment of all our staff. Their tireless work during the pandemic and beyond continues to support Ireland’s young people, and the communities where they live, work, learn and play. We want to thank each and every one of you.

Dr. Joseph Duffy, CEO said:

‘It is a great honour for Jigsaw to be recognised at a European level. This award is for our staff, who have remained dedicated to the mental health of Ireland’s young people during incredibly challenging times.’

The prize recognises initiatives that contribute to European cooperation and the promotion of common values. Awarded every year by the European Parliament, the prize goes to projects organised by people or organisations that encourage:

  • Mutual understanding and closer integration between people in the EU
  • Cross-border cooperation that builds a stronger European spirit
  • EU values and fundamental rights.

Congratulations to all the winners, especially to our fellow Irish awardee Nasc, the Migrant & Refugee Rights Centre.
