A further ten schemes can now advance in planning from the 2016/17 Voluntary Youth Capital Scheme. 

The ten projects will begin the process of the business case, design and planning stages. 

To date 20 schemes have been announced to advance in planning from the 2016/17 Voluntary Youth Capital Schemes.

Permanent Secretary, Derek Baker said: “Good quality youth work can significantly impact on the lives of young people and can make a real difference to their future. This capital scheme gives youth organisations across Northern Ireland the opportunity to improve the service they offer.
