Youth Projects in Dublin are under threat of further budget cuts.
Dublin Focus on Youth are calling on politicians and public officials to put a stop to these cuts.
The campaign has called a protest on Wednesday 27th January at 4pm at the Dail.
The Current Situation

•This works out at less than €12 per young person per week

What we are looking for

•Funding for Youthwork projects and services to be maintained at 2008 levels for 2010 in order to maintain all frontline services to the most at risk young people in Dublin
