The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappene T.D., launched a new targeted youth funding scheme titled "UBU- Your Place Your Space" which provides over €38.5 million for youth services nationwide.

 

UBU - Your Place Your Space brings together four already existing, overlapping schemes with a value of over €38.5 million. The scheme aims to provide services that support young people to develop personal and social skills required to improve their life chances. These include services covering health, education, employment and social connectedness. The scheme targets young people who are marginalised, disadvantaged or vulnerable. Laois and Offaly Education and Training Board's Youth Work team are excited to be involved in rolling out the new scheme with our community and voluntary partners.
