Min­is­ter for Chil­dren and Youth Af­fairs James Reilly an­nounced the al­lo­ca­tion of Na­tional Lot­tery fund­ing to two Wick­low groups.

Grants were awarded to Blue Dol­phin Spe­cial Olympics Club for equip­ment and to Liv­ing Life Coun­selling Cen­tre to fund ac­tiv­i­ties.

The Depart­ment of Chil­dren and Youth Af­fairs has a Na­tional Lot­tery fund which pro­vides once- off grants to com­mu­nity groups and vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions in­volved in pro­vid­ing ser­vices for chil­dren and young peo­ple.

‘The fund­ing is part of a na­tional pro­gramme which will see €910,000 al­lo­cated to­wards pro­vid­ing ser­vices for young peo­ple. This year the scheme is par­tic­u­larly tar­get­ing small scale projects and it fo­cuses on ac­tiv­i­ties that in­volve cul­ture and play, young peo­ple led ini­tia­tives, healthy life­style and those that pro­vide ac­cess for mar­ginal groups to ex­tra cir­cu­lar ac­tiv­i­ties,’ said Min­is­ter Si­mon Har­ris.
