Save essential Youth Services

This petition had 3,168 supporters

Youth Services across the North stand to be decimated by the refusal of the Minister for Education, Peter Weir MLA, to confirm the extension of the additional funding package as introduced by the previous Minister John O'Dowd MLA.

This will see hundreds of part-time youth support worker jobs going.  This will see Youth Centres closing at weekends in areas of most need.

This will see Youth Centres lose programmes such as afterschools learning projects, homework clubs, work with local schools and outreach work on the streets.

The current Minister needs to make his intentions clear now - does he intend to see a huge reduction in the youth provision in this City?
