Lend your voice

Hello John,

As you know NYCI, alongside others, lobbied hard for the retention of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) in this Government, and we thank you for lending your voice to that campaign ([link removed][UNIQID]) .

We congratulate Roderic O’Gorman, TD on his appointment to the reconfigured Ministry and welcome the retention of the Department of Children with additional responsibilities in important areas.

Concern 'Youth Affairs' risks being ommitted

However, we are very concerned at initial indications that ‘Youth Affairs’ may be dropped from the name of the Department, and we are calling for this to be reversed. ([link removed][UNIQID])

We will be lobbying hard on your behalf, for our members and the wider youth sector.

A number of reports published recently by the CSO, OECD and Eurofound have indicated that young people’s well-being, employment and financial position have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19.

Now more than ever, young people will need a Department that explicitly is ‘their’ department and their own voice in Cabinet, given they are facing into such a difficult and uncertain future.

We will continue to work on this issue on your behalf, and urge you to add your voice,

Kind regards,


Mary Cunningham
