Written answers (Question to Children)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 1363 to 1366, inclusive, together.

My Department was established in 2011 and I am happy to supply the Deputy with information relating to the period 2011 to 2019.

As the Deputy is aware my Department is managing the most significant reform of youth services ever undertaken. This will provide an opportunity to identify need and to focus funding on young people most in need of intervention.

In advance of the introduction of a new single targeted funding scheme in 2020, a transition phase in 2019 will see the funding previously provided under the four funding programmes, (Special Projects for Youth, Young Peoples Facilities and Services Fund 1&2, Local Drugs Task Force Projects and Youth Information Centres) collapsed into one funding stream for 2019 to assist with preparations for the new scheme in 2020.

Current funding provided to youth organisations and youth work provision in each of the years 2011 to 2018 and to date in 2019 is given in the table below:

An additional €1.5 million in current funding has been allocated for the youth sector in 2019, bringing the overall allocation for the year to €60.395m. This represents a 2.5% increase on the 2018 allocation.

This additional funding will be used to support programmes in areas where there are disadvantaged young people and where there is a pressing need for targeted services to meet the needs of young people. Detail of the additional €1.5 million allocated for youth work provision in 2019 by scheme is given in the table below:
