Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy has urged local youth groups to apply to a new grants scheme launched by Education Minister John O’Dowd. MurphyConorThe Newry representative said local groups could benefit greatly from the Voluntary Youth Capital Scheme. “This new scheme launched by the Minister provides a real opportunity for organisations that work with young people in Newry to avail of funds to help them continue and improve their services,” he said. “Youth work can have an enormously positive influence on young people so I’m delighted to see that the Minister is providing funds to help these groups, many of which do extraordinary work with little funding. “This scheme allows for groups to apply for funding for upgrades and improvements to facilities and services, allowing groups to reach more young people. “In order to apply, organisations must be registered with the Education Authority and run a youth programme for at least nine hours a week and I would urge any groups in the area that meet these criteria to get in touch with the department and begin work on an application before the May 13th deadline.”
