Tús Work Placement Scheme
Tús is a Department of Social Protection activation initiative for people who are long-term unemployed and in receipt of Jobseekers Allowance. It provides unemployed people with a 12 month part-time (19.5 hours a week) work placement in community organisations. DSP covers employment costs; wages are paid direct to participants. Eligible work and host organisations are explained in: https://www.pobal.ie/FundingProgrammes/TUS/Pages/default.aspx
