Tús progamme

While responsibility for the operation of Tús rests with the Department of Social Protection, it will be managed at a local level, on the Department’s behalf, by the Local Integrated Development Companies and in the Gaeltacht by Údarás na Gaeltachta (Leader Companies).

Community & Voluntary Organisations will be able to develop and deliver services locally and benefit from the skills and experience the unemployed person can bring. Participants will benefit by being involved in work.

All of the work undertaken while participating on Tús will be beneficial to the local community and the types of projects carried out are likely to include:

  • Energy conservation work in homes and community buildings
  • Social care of all age groups and persons with a disability or limited mobility
  • Caretaking, securing, supervising of community buildings and spaces
  • Renovation of community and sporting facilities, including the regeneration and enhancement of community, recreation and sporting spaces
  • Work in support of the promotion of the Irish language, other cultural and heritage activities
  • Community administration, research and community event mangement
  • Coaching for sporting activities (where operated by designated sporting organisations)
  • Repair of equipment for developing world – farm tools, bicycles, computers, sewing machines, health equipment.

Angling related projects may be eligible for support from the Tus programme in the areas highlighted above.

For further information regarding opportunities for TUS projects contact your local Leader Company. Closing dates vary from one Local Development Company (Leader company) to another but even if a deadline for application has passed, clubs should still contact the company and submit an application. Even if it can't be supported immediately it would be ready as resources became available as some projects will be for a specific period only.
