Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
Tipperary community groups and voluntary organisations with an involvement in the provision of children's and youth services are encouraged to apply under the National Lottery Discretionary Fund for once-off grants. The fund is in place in the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.
Tipperary TD Noel Coonan outlined the scope of the scheme is for the provision of services to children and young people. "Grants are generally awarded for once-off projects across a wide variety of areas such as the provision of equipment for youth clubs, youth cafes, scouts, summer camps, day trips for youth clubs/summer camps, play equipment for playschools/crèches and other once- off programs. In addition for 2014 the Department will also consider projects that focus on Children’s and Youth Health issues."
Priority will be given to projects and activities that involve culture, play and recreation, healthy lifestyles for children and young people including innovative new projects aimed at emerging issues for children, and to provide marginalised groups with access to extra-curricular activity based projects.
Completed applications should be returned by post to the Department of Children and Youth Affairs no later than Friday, 6th June, 2014.
