Fine Gael Meath East TD, Regina Doherty, today encouraged local youth clubs to apply for funding from the Local Youth Club Grant Scheme, details of which can be found on the Department of Children and Youth Affairs website.
“This Scheme provides funding for the support of youth work activities at a local level. These grants are made available to youth clubs and groups through the local Vocational Education Committee.
“ The funding responds to the realities and practicalities experienced by local voluntary youth groups in the provision of activities to young people.
“I’d like to encourage all local youth groups to apply for this grant, which provides financial recognition of the diverse range of voluntary youth clubs and groups in existence, supporting and promoting volunteerism as well as club activity at local level. “
The closing date for receipt of applications is 30th June 2012
