As part of my continuing drive for job creation in our area, I'm delighted to announce that the Tolka Area Partnership have been awarded 40 places under the TUS programme for the benefit of local community, voluntary groups and organisations. The TÚS Programme provides for 19½ hours work per week for people who are in receipt of a Jobseekers payment for at least 12 months. If you are interested and want more info, have a look at the TÚS Community Work Placement Initiative on the
Department of Social Protection website HERE or contact me and I'll be happy to help. The closing date is 4.30pm on Friday, 18 February 2011.
