Welcome for youth provision funding in West Belfast
Sinn Féin MLA and Junior Minister Jennifer McCann has welcomed today’s announcement of investment in youth provision in West Belfast.
The West Belfast MLA said:
"Facilities and services for young people are essential particularly in areas like West Belfast that has a high percentage of young people and is an area of economic and social need.
“Today's major investment in some of those facilities is welcome news. It will allow youth providers to continue to deliver services for young people that is supportive and welcoming.
“The investment will also ensure that the individual organisations can work with other similar community based projects to engage with young people from other areas.
“I also hope the funding will encourage those who don't already engage with youth provision to do so in the future.”
