7 April, 2017 - by Máirtín Ó Muilleoir

Sinn Féin South Belfast MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has called on the Education Authority to move rapidly to restore funding for services to vulnerable young people to Rosario Youth Club on the Ormeau Road.

Speaking ahead of attending a protest over the recent £15,000 cut to services at the club, he said: 

“I brought board members and the youth leader of Rosario YC, the most diverse youth club in Belfast, to meet with the Chief Executive of the Education Authority yesterday and we had a frank and constructive discussion.

“While there is still great hurt and anger at the nature of the cut, it’s clear that there is also a solution available which can ensure the valuable work going on at Rosario with children who require additional support can continue.

“I am urging the Education Authority to move with all speed to replace funding for the affected services at Rosario. 

 "In the meantime, I urge the public to continue to support Rosario Youth Club’s campaign until a solution is in place."
