The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone TD, has today announced further funding awards under the 2019 Network Support Fund, a What Works Initiative, supported through Dormant Accounts Funding.
The measure aims to support organisations promoting evidence informed approaches to prevention and early intervention services, so that those working with and for children, young people and their families are supported in doing the right things, in the right way and at the right time.
In announcing this allocation of funding, Minister Zappone said:
“I am delighted to announce funds for organisations working with and for children and young people. This funding will further support them in accessing essential training, workshops, networking and sharing events towards making a positive difference to the lives of children and young people living in Ireland.”
These grants awarded to date under the Network Funding Scheme will enable facilitation of formal and informal knowledge sharing. This knowledge sharing will explicitly focus on enhancing practice, professional dialogue and curiosity around evidence informed prevention and early intervention.
