Local Minister and TD for Dublin Fingal Darragh O’Brien has welcomed funding provided by Government to Fingal remote working projects under the Connected Hubs Scheme.
Under the scheme, which has been designed to assist in the development of the National Hub Network, M-Space in Malahide has been allocated €38,952 while Applewood Community Centre and Fingal Liam Rodgers Community Centre have been allocated €10,000 each.
Commenting Minister O’Brien said, “This funding will enable these existing hubs in Fingal to enhance and add capacity to their remote working infrastructure.
“A wide range of works are planned in the hubs, including the installation of privacy booths, access and security works, the conversion of existing open plan space to modular offices, and provision of enhanced audio visual, networking and conferencing facilities.
“The increased shift to remote working as a result of the pandemic has provided a golden opportunity for a greater regional distribution of jobs to support a better work life balance for many people. The Government want people to have options when it comes to remote and blended working. We have approximately 400 remote working hubs identified across the country and we want to grow and develop this further,” he concluded.
