The Fund has three focus points for change:

  • Personal Development – Programmes that support happy, healthy transitions from childhood through to adulthood (social, physical and mental health resilience)
  • Skills & Employability – Programmes that support successful transitions for young people to economic independence
  • The Fund will support organisations working with children and young people in the Republic of Ireland aged between 6-24 years.
