FAS Project

 

 FÁS Project has been running in Dromcollogher since October 1995.  It presently has 13 participants who staff the Day Care Centre, maintenance on town's amenity areas, & provide tours as requested of the Cooperative Museum.  We also provide assistance to any local Community Groups, Organisations, and individuals when requested.  We especially work with our sister organisation the Respite Care Centre.

FÁS fund and set out guidelines for running of Community Employment Projects and their priority is to progress Participants into employment.  To achieve this goal Community Employment Participants should spend up to 50% of their time on the Project Training.  FÁS Community Employment Projects are evaluated on the percentage of their training budget they spend, how many participants do Core Skills Training and Return to Education training.  Community Employment Projects are required to provide a comprehensive account of training.
