New Funding Opportunities for Prevention and Early Intervention
The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth has launched two new funding schemes. The Learning Together Fund and the Children and Youth Digital Solutions’ Fund are part of the Department's ‘What Works’ Initiative, which aims to maximise the impact of prevention and early intervention and improve outcomes for children and young people living in Ireland. What Works is supported through the Dormant Accounts Fund.
The Learning Together Fund is designed to support community and voluntary organisations, or networks of statutory and non-government organisations, to promote increased understanding and use of evidence informed approaches to prevention and early intervention services for children, young people, and their families. Funded activities should focus on organising or accessing learning, training sessions, workforce development opportunities, while also putting a strong emphasis on future collaborations between peers and disseminating learning to larger audiences, including networks. All applications must have a focus on prevention and early intervention. The Learning Together Fund is open for applications from 9 April until 9AM 10 May 2021.
This fund is being provided to find innovative collaborative projects using digital solutions to solve a problem, collect relevant data or scale resources for children, young people, and their families. The Children and Youth Digital Solutions’ Fund will open for applications at 2PM on 15 April 2021 on the Rethink Ireland website.
