Youth organisations in the North Inner City are set to benefit from €95,962 in funding, a Fine Gael Councillor has said.
Councillor McAdam said: “I am delighted that organisations like An Siól, East Wall North Port Youth Development Group, SWAN among others will benefit from this new funding.
“These youth organisations have essential programmes supporting young people to develop skills, gain new experiences and build self-confidence.
“The Youth Officer in the City of Dublin Education and Training Board does great work in supporting local youth projects and assist in the design of the scheme and administration of funding.
“As in previous years I am confident these grants will assist in improving the quality of the services to the benefit of young people involved.
“The national youth organisations provide exceptional engagement for the children and young people who are members nationwide.
“The provision of these grants underpins this Governments continued commitment to enhance the quality of youth services which add such value to our communities.”
Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone stated that: “Youth Officers play an essential role in the co-ordination of youth service for my Department. They act as a contact point in communities and play an important support role to the providers of youth services.”
“In 2019 we are investing a total of €63.6m in current and capital funding in clubs, services and supports for young people.”
