IYF Supporting … Practical Youth in Northern Ireland

An IYF grant helps fund ‘Practical Youth’ at West Bann Development in Coleraine in the North West of Northern Ireland.  Thirty-six young people from different backgrounds learn practical skills of maintenance/decorating, sewing and crafts, budgeting and money management over the 12 week programme.
One  participant told us “Thank you, Irish Youth Foundation. I will be able to use what I learned at Sew Pretty for the rest of my life.”
Callum, 12, enthused: “I would come to Bridge Youth seven nights a week if I could.”

The money raised at our Annual Ball directly benefits young people like Callum. Tickets are available here.
