401

South Tipperary Development Company(STDC) is to expand its Tús programme in South Tipperary. Persons in receipt of the Disability Allowance, are now eligible to join the Tús programme. A person more than one year unemployed in receipt of Job Seekers Allowance and now those in receipt of the Disability Allowance, can qualify to join the Tús programme. 

The programme aims to provide quality work experience with a local community or voluntary group. Whilst on Tús, the participant will work 19.5 hours per week for a one year period and will receive a nominal top-up to their existing payment. STDC has seven Tús Team Leaders who oversee the programme in South Tipperary, most of whom have been working on Tús since it began in 2011. The Team Leaders will meet and work with applicants to identify their interests, skills and hobbies and will match these to a work placement with a local community or voluntary group.
