Save Community Employment Schemes
The Irish Government has decided to cut the Training and Materials Grant for Community Employment Schemes from €1500 to €500. This cut will lead to many of the incredibly valuable C.E. schemes that are keeping this country going being unable to continue and any staff on these schemes will be unable to recieve valuable training that may lead to jobs that will put money back into the economy. Over 22,000 people throughout Ireland are employed on C.E. schemes and the loss of even one will reduce services throughout Ireland that will need to be funded in another way, the upkeep of many communities are dependant on C.E. schemes, PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION! If we get 100,000 signatures the government must debate this issue this has worked in other countries lets make it work here!!!
