LGBTI+ Youth Service Grant Scheme 2020

August 6, 2020

One-off Grants for LGBTI+ Youth Services

The Department of Children and Youth Affairs has made a grant available under the LGBTI+ Youth Service Scheme 2020.

The scheme aims to increase Youth Services contact hours with LGBTI+ young people to ensure that all LGBTI+ young people are visible, valued and included.

The initiative is intended to provide for additional youth worker hours dedicated specifically to supporting young LGBTI+ people and for any associated additional costs e.g. transport, or venue hire; the action arises primarily from the needs identified by young people themselves and the youth sector in the consultation process for the LGBTI+ National Youth Strategy.

The evidence review also identifies youth services support as important to young people during the coming out process.  The initiative is primarily intended to facilitate increased access to youth services for LGBTI+ young people in rural areas.
