Community Employment



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.

 The 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 equivalent to your existing DSP payment plus a €20 participation bonus with

a minimum payment €225.50

of EZ08.


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 21 years 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.


Roma Travellers aged 18 or older 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.
