The ten projects will begin the process of the business case, design and planning stages. 

To date 20 schemes have been announced to advance in planning from the 2016/17 Voluntary Youth Capital Schemes.

Permanent Secretary, Derek Baker said: “Good quality youth work can significantly impact on the lives of young people and can make a real difference to their future. This capital scheme gives youth organisations across Northern Ireland the opportunity to improve the service they offer.
