NYCI Budget 2021 Campaign: #YouthWorkChangesLives

In Budget 2021 our members are calling on Government to invest an additional €4.7m in youth work services to provide more supports and activities for young people, meet the needs of our growing youth population and to strengthen voluntary youth organisations.

The Covid-19 outbreak represents a major challenge for the youth work sector.
It changes the way we all must work. With that in mind, we’re bringing together resources, training and advice to support you through this time.

Contacting our team

We are working remotely as much as possible at the moment.
