Hassan welcomes launch of £3million Community Works Programme

Sinn Féin Councillor Tony Hassan has welcomed the news that the Joint First Minister Martin McGuinness  has announced a Citywide Community Work Programme (CWP) at an event at Derry’s Northside, Shantallow today.


Councillor Tony Hassan said “I am pleased that this scheme has got the green light and that it will be happening right in the heart of local communities. It will help improve employment and  provide long term placements targeted upon those on the margins especially young people in the 25 years age bracket and long term unemployed.
