Tús Community Work Placement Initiative

TÚS Community Work Placement is an initiative of the Department of Social Protection which is implemented by CPLN Area Partnership through placement within local community groups.

TÚS will provide quality working opportunities for people who are unemployed while at the same time carrying out beneficial work within communities. It is envisioned that Tús will act as a valuable mechanism for participants to retain & sharpen their existing skill-base in readiness for a return to full time employment.

Participants will work a 19.5 hour week for a period of 52 weeks, while still retaining their existing secondary benefits e.g. rent allowance, medical card, fuel allowance etc.

The Department of Social Protection will identify and contact persons on the Live Register who satisfy the criteria and offer them the opportunity to be considered for local placement as opportunities arise.

Prospective sponsors from local voluntary, community & not-for-profit organisations who would like to submit an application for placement can apply to the TÚS Office.
