Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Employment Support Services
137. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection the date referrals of jobseekers to contracted employment services will recommence; and when activation services for those already referred will recommence. [23133/20]
I am happy to confirm for the Deputy that activation services in my Department and referrals to external contractors began to recommence on 8th June last in line with the move to Phase 2 of the easing of the Covid-19 restrictions.
I trust that this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
