The application process opens on Tuesday 7th May 2019 and closes on Friday 31st May 2019.

The scheme is specially designed ‘to target communities of interest and those who may be at greater risk of social exclusion, marginalisation or isolation, because they experience a combination of barriers to learning.’

The Inclusion Scheme enables EA Youth Service to engage young people who would not regularly participate in youth programmes. Primary focus is given to projects with the following target groups/communities of interest:

  • Young people with special educational needs or disabilities
  • Young people who are newcomers or have English as an additional language
  • Young people in care
  • Young carers and young parents
  • Young people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender
  • Young people from the Traveller Community

The application form and guidance notes are available. Visit www.eani.org.uk/youthinclusion The application form is available in Word format and once completed should be emailed to youthinclusion@eani.org.uk 

Hard copies can be returned by post to, EA Youth Service Inclusion Scheme, Youth Service, Education Authority, Grahamsbridge Road, Dundonald, BT16 2HS.  Groups can also contact the EA Youth Office by telephone on 028 9056 6952 or 028 9056 6429.

A number of support workshops have been arranged to provide advice, support and guidance to organisations who are considering applying for funding under the Youth Intervention Programme for 2019-2020.  Due to changes in the application forms this year we strongly recommend groups attend.  Visit https://eafundingevents.eventbrite.co.uk to register.

Awards will be made to successful groups subject to the availability of funds.
