Jigsaw – The National Centre For Youth Mental Health Comes To Thurles

We understand a lease was signed on February 5th last, on a premises to house the ‘Mental Health’ charity ‘Jigsaw’, [Registered Charity Number CHY 17439], at the Technology Park, Nenagh Road, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

Services from the new premises are expected to be delivered from May/June next, depending on future current national public health guidelines, regarding Covid-19 virus restrictions within the building trade.

Building modifications will be required internally to facilitate Jigsaw’s preferred design and layout, however the recruitment process will commence soon, to select some seven permanent positions to staff the new unit. This qualified team is expected to include a Lead Manager, a Psychologist, a Mental Health Nurse, an Occupational Therapist and a Social Worker and Administrative Staff.

The new Thurles central venue will be the base, which will serve outreach hubs in both Nenagh, to the North and Clonmel, to the South of Tipperary; both as yet to come on stream.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I’m enquiring about the recruitment of a social worker role mentioned above. I’m wondering if the recruitment process has commenced and if I could speak to someone about this.

    I currently work as a social worker with adults with intellectual disability and am also a qualified CBT therapist.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kindest regards,

    Mairead Hennessy

    Ms Hennessy,
    Thank you for your communication.
    We advise that you contact Jigsaw directly at
    It would appear that the Jigsaw organisation has run into a further delay, with regards to the opening of their Thurles office.
    But do send them your application.
    Best of luck.
    George Willoughby
