Chairman’s Message

I am delighted to welcome you to the Irish Youth Foundation’s website. 

As Chairman, I’m extremely proud of IYF’s work over the past 30 years supporting disadvantaged young people in the UK.  

This website offers you an introduction to these diverse and vital projects from cross community work in Northern Ireland to cultural activities in Liverpool and practical support for youth people with mental and emotional difficulties in Central London. 

In 2019, we celebrate our 30 year anniversary.  Please consider signing up for our newsletter so you can be the first to hear about our celebratory events and project news.

As our foundation is almost entirely voluntary, the funds raised go directly to where they are most needed.  More information on how to donate is available here. The Irish Youth Foundation and our recipients are most grateful for all donations received. 

Thank you for taking the time. 

Very best,

John Dwyer
