The COVID-19 crisis continues and it’s vital that we continue to limit social contact and practice good hygiene. Most of all we can come together by staying apart – at least six feet apart when walking, shopping, or spending time outdoors.
These posters, booklets and social media icons are helpful reminders to protect the health and safety of everyone in our community. Please share them online as much as you can!
We in Léargas are following Government guidance and have extended our working from home arrangements, and rescheduled events.
We will continue working from home until at least 05 May 2020, when we will review this policy. You can reach staff by email as normal, or by phone in cases of emergency (we have call forwarding in operation).
With regret we have cancelled these events:
We have postponed these events and hope to re-organise later in the year, depending on how the situation evolves:
If your Erasmus+ or European Solidarity Corps activities involve travel to or transit through affected regions, or hosting participants from those regions, please take the following steps:
If you have already had to cancel project activities and wish to apply for force majeure, please download this zip file with the forms and procedure: Force Majeure Process & Forms 130320
If you have questions about the impact of COVID-19 on your Erasmus+ or European Solidarity Corps project, please check this FAQ from the European Commission: COVID-19 Impact Q&A for Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes.
If you have general queries related to travel in your Erasmus+ or European Solidarity Corps project, please contact our Programme Finance and Operations team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to include your project reference number (e.g. 2018-1-IE01-KA102-100100) and as much detail as you can provide.
If you were planning to travel as part of any other programme, please email the project officer listed in our Meet the Team section. If you are currently on a placement in Ireland or abroad, it is your responsibility to follow the travel advice issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs and by your local or national government. Please maintain contact with your project officer during your placement.
We urge all beneficiary organisations to remain guided by the national advice issued by the Health Service Executive and the sectoral guidance of the Department of Education and Skills and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.
We wish you all strength and solidarity in this very challenging time.
