Grant for Living Life Centre
LIVING Life Counselling Centre in Bray is to receive a National Lottery grant.
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.
