PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Sportslink provides State of the Art Sports and Leisure facilities for its members and their families based in Santry, North County Dublin. It has a full membership of approximately 6,000 and overall family members of close to 20,000.
Sportslink has been working with Fingal LEADER Partnership TÚS Community Work Place Initiative since September 2013. Since then 28 participants have taken part in the TÚS Initiative in Sportslink working a variety of roles from Grounds work to Administration to Gym Instructors. Of the 28 people that have worked in Sportslink through the TÚS Initiative, over 1/3 of them have stayed working in Sportslink on either a Part Time or Full Time basis and all the participants have been given some further training during their time working in Sportslink, which has helped some to secure full time positions since finishing the scheme.
