The Southern Education and Library Board has received additional funds from the Department of Education to promote and support inclusive youth work projects in its area.

The Youth Service is launching an Inclusion Scheme which aims to support youth work specifically targeting communities of interest and those who may be at greater risk of social exclusion, marginalisation and isolation because they experience a combination of barriers to learning.

An SELB spokesperson said, “The Inclusion Scheme is designed to support meaningful developmental opportunities for young people in the target groups over a minimum of 20 weeks up to March 2014.

“Voluntary organisations may apply for between £5000 and £10,000 to provide staffing, transport, hire of premises and programme costs. SELB Youth Service is keen to get this scheme on the ground as quickly as possible, so to that end we are inviting applicants to seek advice from the Area Youth Offices if required.”

Applications for support under the Inclusion Scheme are invited from registered voluntary youth organisations and/ or from bona fide voluntary organisations that have experience of direct delivery of youth work programmes with young people.

Applicant organisations should have a good track record of programme delivery, financial monitoring and submitting returns by deadline.

Closing date for applications is Friday 26th July. Application packs are available from Board Headquarters:
