Huge thanks to all of you who supported young people by signing and sharing our Budget 2022 petition. 3,085 of you used your voices to call on the Government to properly fund youth work in Budget 2022, and ensure that young people in Ireland get the pandemic recovery that they deserve.
We have created a booklet which contains the stories from this campaign, as well as all of the signatures collected. We’ve shared this with Minister Roderic O’Gorman, the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth and other key decision makers, to show them just how much support there is for proper funding of youth work.
You can browse through the booklet online now – see the powerful stories from young people about how youth work changed their lives, and see if you can find your name among the signatures!
