Tús is a community work placement initiative providing short-term working opportunities for unemployed people ie. 12 month placements. SECAD commenced the Tús Initiative in July 2011 with an allocation of 220 places.

The placement opportunities benefit both the participant and the community and voluntary organisations in which they work. The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP) has overall responsibility for the Tús Initiative which is managed locally by Local Development Companies like SECAD.

“Since the beginning of the programme in 2011, it is evident that the benefits of a Tús placement have surpassed participants’ expectations in the vast majority of cases”.
