The Noreside Resource Centre for the Unemployed is in existence since 1987 and have been involved with Social and Community Employment since their inception.
A large number of people who participated on these Programme’s over the years in some cases found a purpose to their lives and many more found full time employment.
In terms of meeting the objectives of our project we would have to state that as providers of services to the community to the most vulnerable members of our society, our objectives are of necessity, recurring and ongoing. However, knowing that we assist people in making their lives better whether it is giving them a social outlet to nurture their personal development, or the satisfaction that they have got the job they wanted through their involvement as participants, or through our educational programmes.
The Irish Congress of Trade Unions along with the Network of Centres for the Unemployed are looking at new ways of servicing the changing needs of the public, taking into consideration the changing economy and increasing social problems other than unemployment i.e. substance abuse, ex-offenders and the increasing problems associated with asylum seekers.
