It’s amazing what can be done in a matter of months when you have an Enthusiastic and Energetic Committee, all with the same Goal

“To have a location for members & their families to gather for group activities, support, information, and other purposes.”

That’s where you come in – other purposes?

What would you like to see going on in your Centre?

We have slots already in place from early September for Speech and Language Therapy with our Voices for DS Galway project to commence in the centre.

We would love your ideas and Feedback. Also, we have set up a Whatsapp group for parents in the East of the County that want to be kept up to date with the progress. Let us know if you want your name added.

We have just made an application to Galway Rural Development (GRD) to check the availability of participants from Tús with the required skills to assist us in the Centre as a receptionist and possibly work on some projects.

Waiting for the placement can be a lengthy process but by making a Self Referral it can speed up the search for a suitable applicant.

If you felt that this position was something that you, or somebody you know would be interested in, you can make an application to be considered by Tús. Email to obtain a copy of Tús Referral Form

Note – Part D explains the eligibility conditions eg. who’s eligible, rate of pay, hours etc

Before you bring the application form to your local DSP office, please inform us ( as we have a contact in the GRD that is working on this application for us.
