The Tús Initiative was formally launched by the Department of Social Protection in early 2011.

How do I Participate on a Community Employment Childcare Programme?
The Tolka Area Partnership Internship Service continues across our Finglas and Cabra offices with a number of notable placements. The demand for Internships is growing steadily as more participants view Internships as a way of gaining vital skills and experience in their chosen career path.
Tús is a community work placement scheme that provides short term work placement opportunities for unemployed people.
Unemployed people are referred to Tolka Area Partnership’s Tús scheme by the Department of Social Protection. TAP then sources suitable work placements for individuals.
Work placements are provided through community and voluntary organisations such as sports and social clubs, local charitable organisations, youth clubs etc. TAP staff work with local organisations to identify possible work placement roles and support those organisations in taking on unemployed individuals through the scheme. Once placed participants work 19.5 hours per week for one year.
