We are in the process of moving to a single website for the Education Authority. When using this website, please also check the EA website www.eani.org.uk to ensure you are accessing the most up to date information.
Voluntary youth groups fall into 3 main categories, those that receive:
1. No assistance in the payment of staff salaries.
2. Assistance in the payment of part-time salaries.
3. Assistance in the payment of full and part-time salaries.
The board will denote which category of assistance may be offered to your group. All offers of assistance are subject to annual review and require annual registration on the NIYSA form. Non-return of the form by the given date will result in the withdrawal of support.
Applications must include:
The project must indicate the process by which it will evaluate its work.
The project must be open to the system of ongoing board monitoring and assessment based upon the agreed aims, objectives and quantitative targets.
The project must have a clear system of financial management that must be consistent with the administrative requirements of the board.
All offers of assistance are subject to annual review and require annual registration on the NIYSA form (details advertised in local press February / March).
