The latest Department of Social Protection INTREO Centre has been officially opened by Kevin Humphreys, T.D., Minister of State at the Department of Social Protection.

Located at Government Buildings, Kilrush Road, Ennis, the new INTREO Centre provides a one-stop-shop for jobseekers where they can get employment and financial supports in the one place for the first time.  Previously, the social welfare services were divided into three separate locations in the town, which was inconvenient for the Department’s customers and put greater pressure on processing times for applications.

While in Clare, Minister Humphreys will also meet with representatives of Community Employment schemes including Mountshannon Community Council CE and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul CE.  Overall, there are 31 Community Employment Programmes currently underway in County Clare, that include 4 Job Initiative Programmes and which have 523 participants.
