NCB facilitates a support network, LINKS, for all organisations grant aided by the Big Lottery Fund under the Empowering Young People’s Programme. Through Empowering Young People, the Big Lottery Fund supports projects that give young people in Northern Ireland aged 8-25 the ability to cope with challenges in their lives.
A list of the LINKS grant holder organisations can be found here.
The support provided by LINKS for EYP grant holders is delivered across Northern Ireland in a number of ways:
- Cluster Group Meetings
- Tailored one-to-one support
- Collaboration with Young People in the Lead
The support covers a range of themes:
- Sharing learning and best practice
- Measuring impact
- Involving children and young people in project design, delivery and review

To help support the LINKS project we would like to recruit a small group of young people aged 8-25, who have an understanding of the challenges young people in Northern Ireland face today. Read more here.
