The value of the Tús scheme for the long term unemployed is that it acts a stepping stone to employment experience, and this is particularly effective in the Healthcare Sector, Childcare Sector, Special Needs Organisations and Hospitality.  Furthermore, it provides a daily structure and builds confidence through the learning of new skills.

  •  3 Tús schemes in the Ballon area, including 4 Tus participants who work with the Ballon Improvement Group


“At Ballon Community Centre we are indebted to LEADER for the valuable advice and support which they provided towards the redevelopment of our Centre. Apart from offering generous financial assistance, we benefited from LEADER’s encouragement and experience as they helped us with our early plans and guided us through all stages to completion of the project. As a result, we are very fortunate to have a state of the art Community & Sports Centre which is widely used by all age groups and has had an enormously positive impact on our community.”
