Westmeath Community Development is currently seeking Community Groups around the County for TUS placements. If your community group is interested in placing a person with them, the contact details are at the end. Below you can find some information of what the TUS programme is.
Westmeath Community Development’s TUS scheme currently has 160 places. Initially, the allocation was for 100 places but this allocation was increased to 160 places in early 2014 in order to match demand from local community groups. This scheme aims to provide short term working opportunities for unemployed people, and all work that is to be carried out by TUS participants benefits their local community. Every parish in County Westmeath continues to benefit by the placement of workers in local projects.
The TUS scheme is an excellent opportunity for community groups in Westmeath who are looking for specific work to be carried out to get a worker for at least a year.
