The allocation of capital funding to Ballinasloe Youth Project has been confirmed by local Minister Denis Naughten.
The project will receive almost €13,000 towards the purchase of equipment including a TV, laptops, pool table etc and is one of 86 youth projects across the country which will receive funding.
The funding is being provided by the Minister for Children to provide much needed assistance to youth projects to either up-grade or replace equipment or to fund health and safety improvements to premises or the upgrade or refurbishment of premises.
“This funding will assist the project in purchasing equipment that will benefit all the young people in the area who use this service,” stated Minister Naughten. “It is crucial that we recognise the importance of projects such as this and support its continued work and the quality of the service.”
