Derry Search Youth Group

Launched in July 1985 to facilitate, design and develop projects that encourage the personal, social and spiritual development of young people aged 4-25, Derry Search Youth Group applied for assistance with the purchase of camera equipment to enable the young people to learn photographic skills, record their Covid-19 lockdown experiences and document the history of Derry Search Youth Group.  Following his work with them in the past, Councillor Warke spoke highly of this youth organisation that specialises in reaching out to disengaged 11-25 year olds who have low self-worth and self-esteem and are at risk of engaging in anti-social behaviour and dropping out of education.  On his recommendation, a grant of £1,000 was agreed.
