These schemes provide employment

CE and Tús Schemes are central to many communities the length and breadth of the country. Not only do they provide employment in local communities but they also allow people who cannot access jobs in mainstream employment to work. The current Government has focused on the activation aspect of these schemes alone, which has been to the detriment of participants and also local communities.

Fianna Fáil will rebalance the focus of these schemes so that they once again have a dual role; social inclusion and activation.

Fianna Fáil’s plan for CE and Tús Schemes

  1. Protect the schemes

    Protect the future of both of these schemes.

  3. Revise their eligibility criteria

    Revise the eligibility criteria for these schemes, particularly taking into account the needs of older participants.

  4. Roadmap to address pension rights

    Set out a roadmap to address pension rights for CE supervisors and assistant supervisors.
