Welfare to Work

 Welfare to Work

During this difficult recessionary period , our work here in SWWCDP will aim to focus more on supporting people in this community who have recently become unemployed or been made redundant. We are reorganizing the delivery of our community education courses in order to address the needs of those with low or no qualifications, aiming to support low skill workers to consider retraining and encourage people to improve their reading, writing, spelling and maths skills so they can diversify in work if necessary.

Internet Access is now free for jobseekers and you can also browse the job sections of the local papers on our employment Notice Board and access the most up to date welfare and employment information in the Centre.

We also provide supports with one-to-one CV design. Anyone interested can contact Reception on 051-389418 or email Reception@swwcdp.com  for more information.

SWWCDG works in conjunction with such programmes as The Department of Social Protection (DSP) to deliver our very valuable  Community Employment Scheme ( C.E.) and the TUS programme with Wexford Local Development (WLD) . The C.E. scheme provides a very necessary staff resource with participants working in a number of areas within the centre such as Childcare, Reception, building maintenance and the Fusion Youth Café ad participants are afforded opportunities  to gain formal training qualifications in their chosen area. The TUS scheme, also offers participants an opportunity  to obtain on the job work experience.  We are delighted to say that we have a very high success rate of people obtaining permanent and part-time employment from these schemes.
