Mini Grant Scheme

Equality Mini Grant Scheme 2017

Youth Work Ireland’s Mini Grant Scheme is aimed at supporting the work and activities of local youth clubs. Each year the scheme is run in conjunction with Youth Work Ireland Week and helps to support activities and events which promote the year’s theme. This year theme is Equality and while we recognise that Youth Work Ireland clubs are already very active in promoting equality and celebrating diversity through activities, training and events; it is hoped that this scheme will help support this important work and enable clubs to run activities to highlight Equality during Youth Work Ireland Week 2017.

We received 42 Mini Grant Applications from our Member Youth Services, from these 15 youth clubs have been awarded €250 each to carry out activities and events during Youth Work Ireland Week 2017.
