A NEW ONLINE directory for the unemployed has been launched by Minister for Social Protection Joan Burton.
Find Your Local Services is the name of the directory, and it was launched alongside the 19th edition of the publication Working for Work.
Working for Work
Working for Work is a handbook for people who are unemployed, about to lose their jobs, or those providing information services to people in such circumstances.
- Unemployed people’s rights and entitlements
- Their education and training options and opportunities
- Advice and supports when moving from welfare to work.
The Irish National Organisation of the Unemployed’s Welfare to Work section produces this handbook annually, and also provides comprehensive Welfare Rights Information and Advocacy services. It can be contacted by phone at 01 856 0088 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Find Your Local Services
The Find Your Local Services directory incorporates information on over 1,000 state and community based services including INOU member organisations, social protection offices, local employment services, citizen’s information centres, job clubs and city / county enterprise boards.
The services are available to view in both map or list form. The directory can be viewed through a portal in the form of a map of Ireland located on the top right-hand side of the INOU websites www.inou.ie and www.redundancy.ie.
Copies of Working for Work are available on-line or by texting book to 51444
