The Report of the Comhairle na nÓg Development Fund (2007-2008)Adobe PDF format document

The Report of the Comhairle na nÓg Development Fund (2007-2008) presents the findings of an independent evaluation of the first year of the Development Fund. The result show significant improvements in the operation of many Comhairlí na nÓg. Some local authorities have established regular sessions of Comhairle na nÓg, which link with the adult county council and interact with policy-makers to ensure that the views of young people are included in shaping policies and services. It is evident from the report that the additional funding has enabled many Comhairlí na nÓg to meet on a regular and sustained basis, possibly the single biggest achievement of the scheme.
