Grant to have great ‘impact’
Thursday, 20 April 2017
A BUSHMILLS woman will be heading up a new programme funded by the International Fund for Ireland after they committed to over £2.6m financial assistance for community projects in NI.
Project Co-ordinator, Leanne Abernethy, said she was "delighted, excited and looking forward" to working on this programme they've named 'IMPACT' and is looking forward to making a difference to the young people they work with.
The funding, approved at the organisation's recent Board Meeting in County Donegal, includes £1.5m for ten Peace Impact (PIP) projects that will assist marginalised communities to resolve complex issues relating to identity and the conflict.
A further £972,000 has been awarded across 11 Personal Youth Development projects that aim to encourage young people to make positive life choices, take part in good relations activities and pursue further education and training provision.
