Dolan calls for participation in Education Authority Youth Funding Consultation

Published: 16 November, 2018

Sinn Féin MLA Jemma Dolan has urged all stakeholders to participate in and make submissions to the Education Authorities Youth Funding Consultation.

The Fermanagh South Tyrone MLA said:

'The Education Authority (EA) is looking at proposals to change the way youth organisations apply for and receive funding.

'In any consultation process it is vital that the views of those most likely to be impacted are heard and listened to, with this in mind I am urging as many youth groups as possible to take part in this consultation process and make submissions.

'There are a number of regional workshops taking place over the course of the consultation period and the one most accessible to Fermanagh is in Omagh Youth Centre on Monday 14th January at 7pm. Workshops are targeted at specific regional organisations and local youth groups but attendance at all workshops is open to the public and all interested parties

'Sinn Féin will be making a submission of our own and welcomes the opportunity to engage with youth groups throughout the consultation period.

'The consultation will run until the 5th of February 2019.' ENDS
