SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED SUPPLEMENTARY WELFARE ALLOWANCE) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 1) (MISCELLANEOUS AMENDMENTS) REGULATIONS 2012
(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)
These Regulations provide for a number of miscellaneous amendments to the Social Welfare (Consolidated Supplementary Welfare Allowance) Regulations 2007 as a consequence of the abolition of certain schemes and changes to the operation of other schemes. In particular, these Regulations provide for various amendments arising from—
- the transfer of administrative responsibility for certain employment and community services from FÁS to the Department of Social Protection; and
- the updating of references to various employment support schemes administered by the Department of Social Protection.
In addition, various references contained in the 2007 Regulations are being aligned with the provisions of the Social Welfare Consolidation Act 2005 and the relevant Housing Acts.
