Hazzard welcomes call for youth service capital scheme applications
Sinn Féin MLA Chris Hazzard has welcomed Education Minister John O'Dowd's announcement of the Voluntary Youth Capital Scheme which will provide capital grants for Youth Service facilities.
The Sinn Féin education spokesperson said;
"This scheme announced today by Education Minister John O'Dowd will greatly assist youth services in the invaluable work they do with young people across the North.
"It will provide capital grants to allow youth services to improve their facilities, refurbish premises and provide services to meet the needs of young people with disabilities.
"The application process itself has also been simplified to make it easier for youth organisations to apply.
"This is a further indication of Sinn Féin's commitment to providing first-class services to children and young people."
