LGBTI+ Initiative 2020
9 July 2020
The Department of Children and Youth Affairs has €100,000 available in 2020 for an LGBTI+ Youth Service Scheme. The scheme aims to increase Youth Services contact hours with LGBTI+ young people to ensure that all LGBTI+ young people are visible, valued and included.
 
The initiative is intended to provide for additional youth worker hours dedicated specifically to supporting young LGBTI+ people and for any associated additional costs e.g. transport, or venue hire; the action arises primarily from the needs identified by young people themselves and the youth sector in the consultation process for the LGBTI+ National Youth Strategy. 
 
The scheme is open to voluntary youth organisations or services that are LGBTI+ youth focused. 
 
The LGBTI+ Youth Service Scheme will target young people aged 15 to 24 who identify as LGBTI+ for one-to-one and group support to afford young people a fun and safe environment where they are visible, valued and accepted.
 
Applications must be submitted by close of business on Friday, 31st July 2020.
