A grant of €70,000 was allocated by The Tony Ryan Fund Year 2 with €60,000 awarded in Year 1 to support The Work Winner programme. The Work Winner Programme is run in conjunction with Tipperary Regional Youth Services. It aims to develop a pool of young people (specifically under 25’s) in Tipperary who are job ready, therefore available to take up employment opportunities as they arise, both now and into the future. This has been achieved both through working with the young people through training, work placement and progression paths, and also through supporting local employers to work with young people, giving them practical skills so that they are potential employees into the future. There are labour activation schemes in Tipperary, but none of them are targeted specifically at the under 25s who are long term unemployed.
