MAKING A DIFFERENCE TO THE LIVES OF YOUNG PEOPLE
Youth work makes a real difference to the lives of young people in our community. The National Youth Council of Ireland supports a number of campaigns aimed at improving the lives of young people in Ireland. Below are some of the campaigns that are currently running.
VOTE AT 16
NYCI believes that young people should have a greater say in decisions and actions that affect them and their community. We have been campaigning for Government to extend the right to vote to 16 and 17 year olds for local, national and European elections.
We attended an extremely informative meeting with the Office of the UN Special Representative for Children & Armed Conflict @childreninwar.
Protecting the rights of children must be a top priority in times of conflict.
Congratulations to @Leargas on today’s excellent #AllAboard event.
Great to see the excitement of so many young people & youth workers from @ywirl, @nycinews & many more, as they took off on the train to learn all about the many European opportunities available #EYY2022
Strong message from our members to @DeptRCD: make sure to include youth work organisations in the energy support package for voluntary organisations. They need support through the winter months to avoid any reduction in their essential services.👇👇👇
Register your interest to join us on #WorldMentalHealthDay for a webinar on anxiety in young people & how the youth work sector can support youth mental health.

💡🙁Youth work organisations shouldn't face impossible decisions about keeping the lights on or supporting young people.
📈 The limited funding increase for youth organisations in #Budget2022 is effectively a cut, with inflation set to be 5.25% for 2023. #YouthWorkChangesLives
It is vital for youth organisations to have a clear policy and a set of procedures in place for addressing complaints & allegations to find a way forward.
Join us for a half-day in-person workshop to improve your awareness & knowledge of good practice: https://bit.ly/3SIsywN
