The Government is to give people free vouchers to use remote working hubs.

Minister Heather Humphreys has unveiled the Connected Hubs Voucher Scheme today as part of increased measures to allow people to work in their communities rather than commute to offices in bigger towns and cities.

At least 10,000 hot desk spaces will be provided under the Scheme, which is aimed at both existing hub users, as well as those accessing hub facilities for the first time.

The Minister also announced €5 million in funding, through the Connected Hubs 2022 Call, which will be used to build capacity and enhance existing Remote Working facilities.

Some 81 projects across the country were successful in securing funding.
