UBU – Your Place Your Space provides funding to youth services that support young people to develop the personal and social skills required to improve their life chances. This includes services covering health and wellbeing, education, employment and social connectedness. The scheme will target young people aged between 10 to 24 years who are experiencing economic, social and cultural disadvantage.
The scheme was designed in collaboration with young people, the youth sector and Education and Training Boards over the last five years and streamlines and strengthens previous targeted youth funding arrangements.
The first cycle of UBU – Your Place Your Space runs to December 2023, incorporating a new reporting and continuous improvement approach as part of the model.
Education and Training Boards are the funding intermediaries for UBU – Your Place Your Space. Under the Education and Training Boards Act 2013, the ETBs have a statutory role with youth services in their functional area.
