The Department of Social Protection chooses who can take part in the Tús programme in our area.
The people that they choose:
- Have been out of work and getting a Jobseekers payment for a minimum of 12 months
- Are living in an area where we work
Tús is a community work experience programme that offers a quality work experience for people who have been out of work.
All Tús work placements are in community organisations that benefit from additional human resources to deliver their services.
Northside Partnership runs this programme in our area for the Department of Social Protection. The Department selects who will take part and the Partnership finds suitable work placements for them.
In 2014, we placed 200 people into work placements with community organisations in our area.
