The Executive Office, in partnership with the Education Authority (EA), are inviting applications from groups, who are registered with the EA, to deliver a youth programme as part of the Youth Intervention Programme in 2019. 

The programme aims to target young people living in interface areas and areas where there is potential for heightened social unrest during the summer period of June, July and August.  A particular focus of the programme is in engaging young people on weekends, evenings and during times of high community tensions. 

The main outcomes of Youth Intervention Funding is to improve attitudes between young people from different community backgrounds and to reduce the number of crime and anti-social behaviour incidents carried out by young people in areas where the participants come from.
