4 April, 2017 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has welcomed a commitment from the Education Authority that funding applications from a number of youth service providers in west Belfast will be reviewed. 

Pat Sheehan said: 

"I led a Sinn Féín delegation to meet the Education Authority today to challenge last week's decision to cut funding from a number of youth service providers in west Belfast. 

"We raised concerns about the proposed cuts and the manner in which the youth organisations were notified. 

"At the meeting we secured a commitment from the Education Authority that the funding applications from a number of youth organisations in west Belfast will be reviewed. 

"This is a welcome development and Sinn Féin will continue to engage with the Education Authority to check the status of these reviews."
