Applications are now open for groups who wish to deliver a programme under Planned Intervention Programme 2021/22. The programme must:
- specifically target young people aged 10 – 25 years old and must divert young people away from becoming involved in sectarian activities, civil disorder or other types of anti-social behaviour.
- take place in an interface area or in an area where there is the potential for severely heightened unrest.
- take place during the period 1 June 2021 to 30 September 2021
Applications must demonstrate how they meet the following outcomes:
Outcome 1 – Reduction in number of crime and antisocial behaviour incidents in the areas where the young people live
Outcome 2 – Reduction in the number of young people engaging in risk taking behaviours
Outcome 3 – Increase in the % of young people who think favourably about young people in the other community
Groups may claim a maximum of £200 per young person for programme costs. Groups will not be expected, at application stage, to detail the plan for spend, to allow flexibility in meeting young people’s needs and ensuring government guidelines on Covid 19 are followed at all times, and to allow programme delivery to be appropriate to these at the time.
Groups considering applying should attend one of the three workshops on 20th April, 27th April or 28th April (places need to be booked).
Completed applications must be submitted to the Education Authority no later than 4pm on Friday 30th April 2021.
