Description:

Minister's response "The role of FÃS in relation to the National Drugs Strategy is to facilitate the rehabilitation of stabilised drug users and to prepare them to re-enter the active labour market through focused training which will enable them to re-integrate into working life. This is being achieved through participation in a range of FÃS programmes, including Community Employment (CE), and also integration into mainline training aimed at progression into the active labour market.

FÃS aims to promote labour market re-integration through targeted and mainstream initiatives including guidance & support from the referral point which is the FÃS Employment Services/Local Employment Services and pre-CE initiatives to support stabilisation."
