Community Employment programme


The Community Employment (CE) programme is designed to help people who are long-term unemployed and other disadvantaged people to get back to work by offering part-time and temporary placements in jobs based within local communities. Department of Social Protection (DSP) gives financial support in the form of allowances and funding to assist with the Community Employment schemes. The rate of payment for new applicants based on 19.5 hours worked will be the equivalent to your existing DSP payment plus a €20 participation bonus with a minimum payment
of €208.

 

Eligibility Criteria for Participants

 

The criteria for participating on the Community Employment programme are based on age and length of time in receipt of various social welfare payments. In general, the Part-time Integration Option is for people of 25 or over who are receiving social welfare payments for 1 year or more, and people of 18 years or over in receipt of disability-related payments. The Part-time Job Option is for people who are 35 or over and in receipt of social welfare payments for 3 years or longer.

 

Travellers aged 18 or over are eligible for both options.

 

Please note that eligibility to participate on the Community Employment programme is linked to those in receipt of an Irish social welfare payment (where specified). Those persons not meeting the criteria under the Part-time Integration or Part-time Job Options, or who are signing for credits, or are receiving social welfare benefits from a different country, are not eligible to participate on Community Employment.
