UBU Projects 

These grant-aided youth work initiatives, funded by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth aims to facilitate the personal and social development of participants to realise their potential. In addition, they present opportunities for young people to undertake actions corresponding to their own aspirations and to assume responsibilities within their local communities.


The UBU - Your Place Your Space was developed in line with recommendations from the Value for Money and Policy Review of Youth Programmes (2014) through the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth. A series of recommendations were made in relation to the redevelopment of a new scheme to replace the existing four schemes

UBU Your Place Your Space aligns with the Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures National Policy Framework, the National Strategy on Children and Young People’s Participation in Decision-Making, and the LGBTI+ and National Youth Strategies.


All young people are enabled to realise their maximum potential, by respecting their rights and hearing their voices, while protecting and supporting them as they transition from childhood to adulthood.
