of[f] the street and could maybe stop under age drinking etc. if
teenagers had more to do.

more cinemas and local clubs.
more places for teenagers to just 'hang out' e.g. a hall where local
bands can play and have their music heard.

more places for young people to go to without it been illegal. e.g.:
- nightclubs for 16-18 years.
more social places
more youth clubs run by young people and people of different churches.
A club where religion is not pressurised members but bigotry is
an ice ring, a better indoor swimming pool. Youth centres would
be a good idea as well youth clubs to get kids off the streets and
they can have people to talk to.

building parts in each area where young people can hang out instead
of standing around the street all day.
creating new and better facilities to keep young people occupied
instead of them remaining around the streets
giving us better places to go at weekends and then you wouldn't
see so many young people on the streets drinking.
helping young people in areas that are dominated by religion to
be more open to people who have different beliefs to them, e.g.
by organising more events in which young people from both the Catholic
and Protestant community, can meet each other and socialise.
looking at villages such as [name of viallge] w[h]ere young people
are not making * [?] or taking care of the village.
making more places for children to mix and become friends.
opening up places such as ice rinks, clubs although anything they
open should have security because louds would ruin it for every
one eg. when they build public parks here louds hang round there
and no one wants to be around it.
providing more things for young people to do.
providing more youth facilities to get kids & young people of[f]
the streets i.e. activity centres.
providing places for young people to socialize.

do, especially in rural areas. This leads to vandalism and anti-social
behaviour as the young people are bored.

areas need help. Cross community youth work. More youth support
workers to work with the young people
better sports facilities.
schemes to bring youths from different religions community together.
sports teams and clubs.
artistic abilities and talents in young people. Not just concentrating
on the academic side in schools. Educating young people in politics
in the hope of improving understanding in young people of the actual
situation in N.1 so that the feature leaders can work further towards
peace. Distributed evenly among people native to the country.
know, wouldn't make a difference, cause not all areas and communities
would see the money spend, its Northern Ireland all over.
in centres for teenagers with a small fee at entry
- Better resources etc for schools. Leisure - Young people should
be encouraged to lead healthier lives. Money should be spent on
leisure centres etc. Music - The education & library boards
are currently having financial difficulties so more money should
be given to them to reduce the increase in fees for the Belfast
School of Music etc.
against drugs, cross community activities
and entertainment for example I can't carry psychology from as to
'A' Level due to cuts in the schools budget and this forced me to
and social places of entertainment

of more social places for youths, a variety of entertainment something
different than cinemas and bowling alleys.
students, I'm going to college and get a grant which only covers
living expenses they should also be able to at least get the EMA
or some other student grant so if there was money being spend on
young people it should be this way.
high school/grammar school should have someone fully qualified coming
into school one day a week so pupils can take there problems to.
should get the E.M.A
football pitches. All round better fitness facilities.
places for kids, more police on roads.
should be spent on training centres with a financial incentive on
completion to assist with the buying of tools etc.

and the E.M.A. should be given to everyone who continues their post-16
for teenagers for social places.
like youth clubs etc to keep young people occupied.
to spend time at and have fun indoors. Sport grounds - tennis courts
for schools. Youth groups.
more social places for young people. Also I think the government
should aim to help young people look at other religions and respect
them, rather than fight and not because they are different from
I believe EMA should be offered to everyone as a parents' income
does not reflect how much the child receives. It also discourages
young people from having part- time jobs. I think the money should
be spent on places for young average people to go not just "under
survey the youth.
a cinema, or somewhere for young people to hang around.
places for the young people to play, for facilities in the town
where people can go and talk to people & they are having problems.

all young people in Northern Ireland EMA no matter what their parent's
an under 16 discount, starting from the age of 10, to the children

streets all the day.
us the money, let us get tickets to the All Ireland Football Final
young people more things to do
young people places to go, do some sort of schemes.
young people places to hang out that doesn't cost us money! We have
more important things to spend money on. (e.g. textbooks + travel
for further education) We don't want to waste money to hang out
with friends, where it's safe and not influenced to do anything
we don't want to.
them extra areas to hang out and do something.
teenagers places to go [to] at weekends that doesn't cost money.
cheap, safe, places for young people to meet. Help for DMS, alcohol
buildings that people can go [to and] have fun and socialise with
good leisure centres fitted out with good sporting facilities at
affordable prices for 16-19 age.
more discos, better youth clubs. They also should have a place where
we can hang out, day & night.
more drop in centers. More activities to do.
more drop- in ministries- such as youth clubs and build relationships
with young people in the area.
more places that we can meet.
more sporting events especially now that the Olympics are coming
in 2012 more in the country areas so that is so much talent that
is never noticed.

more places closer to home like swimming pool or cinema because
I have to travel and would like to go more often but I can only
depend on the bus.
more things to do around the community.
education and advice for young adults.
families with a lower income to give their children the best education
the young people with university costs
young people with equestrianism with grants, no rates on stables,
service for young people. Improved facilities in schools and for
youth groups. More money for sport and music.
believe the EMA should be offered to every child/student to stay
in education. Not just the ones with less than an income of £30,000,
as many students have large families but more than an income of
believe they should be sending the money to charities.
believe the children living in poverty need the money a lot more
than we do.
believe they should use it to set up places of entertainment for
people/teenagers to socialise i.e. an all ages nightclub where we
can go and have fun without having to try and speak into places
where we don't make to age unit.
do not think there are enough places for people to meet and hang
about in their free time and at the weekends. Something like a coffee
shop with music where young people could chat with their friends
is ideal. Also I believe that young people under 18 do not get enough
access to good music in NI. A lot of bands play in pubs etc. and
underage people miss it as a result.
don't really care.
feel that more money should be spent on facilities for young people,
such as more leisure centers, football pitches, cinemas, night clubs
and other social works.
feel that the government should spend extra money on cinema's, bowling
centers and Ice Skating rinks. This would be most appreciated as
teenagers between 14-18 feel there is nowhere to socialize, as youth
clubs they are too old for and pubs and clubs they are not [old]
honestly do not know, though I think that there are other, more
deserving places for the money (alternate fuels; NHS; global warming).
strongly believe that they should be investing the money in young
children's futures such as education, family needs and more subjects
to study at GCSE level.
think all 16-18 year olds should be entitled to the EMA.
think each town/city should be given some money to spend on facilities
for the young people. Such as bowling alleys, ice rinks, arcades
etc. Carrickfergus has neither of these, the Omniplex is the only
place to go in Carrick.
think it should be spent on a youth project[s] to help get people
of[f] the streets drinking & doing drugs...give them an alternative
such as more sports centres, youth clubs etc. Something which doesn't
cost them much and gives them a chance to socialize with others
and realize there's more to life than alcohol & drugs.
think it should be spent on entertainment facilities such as cinemas,
bowling alleys etc.
think it would be good for them to put some money into schools for
trips/swaps so young people could see different cultures and if
they have had troubles over here, been involved in the troubles
in some way, they could see what it is like in other countries,
how they often get along.
think more youth centers should be opened especially at the weekends
as there is nowhere to go or anything to do as we are under age
to go to night clubs and too old to go teenagers disco's as they
cater for 13 to 15 year olds.
think personally think there should be more cinemas and bowling
alleys etc. because while there's nothing to do for young people,
they just get up to bachess [?].
think that everyone should have been given £10 per week EMA for
staying on into upper & lower 6th and for families with lower
incomes, a higher amount should be given just because your parents
earn more than £30,000 doesn't mean you have money and it was unfair
to discriminate in this way.
think that the government should spend their money on more community
centers and on places that teenagers can go [to] and hang out.
feel that boredom is the main thing that encourages teenagers to
smoke, drink and vandalize - for something to do.
think that the money should be invested into building youth centres
and schemes which would permit activities in a range that would
suit the widest variety of young people for example pool, snooker,
football, rugby, nature hikes, computer clubs, art activities.
think that they should spend the extra money by building places
w[h]ere young people can go with their friends.
think that they should spend the extra money on the essentials for
schooling and also entertainment places for young people so they
can get out of the house and away from the TV.
think the government should do a survey to find out about young
people's hobbies and interests and they should give handing towards
giving young people the resources to take part in the activities.I
think it would also be useful for the government to put money towards
charities which help people to deal with issues such as depression,
think the government should spend the extra money on young people
by putting a large amusement park in Northern Ireland because Scotland
and Great Britain have them and we don't.
think the government should spend the extra money on youth clubs
to keep the kids off the street and in somewhere safe.
think the money should be spent on building a safe, friendly, non-sectarian
youth club or entertainment centre for young people and teenagers
within the province.
think there should be more places for young people to go, like cinemas,
bowling, ice skating even an arcade because in a place like Cushendall
there is nothing for us to do.
think there should be more stuff in the Waterside for young people
such as cinemas, bowling alleys.
think they should be spending the extra money on paying tuition
fees for young people going to universities
think they should build more community centers for people both religions
to enjoy or they could fund trips abroad for catholic and protestants.
think they should build more youth centres for young people to go
to like more drama and art clubs. Reorganise and restructure public
parks and play grounds, spend more money on police patrols at night
to keep people safe.
think they should build more: Cinemas, amusements activities, better
think they should have more place for us to go the youth clubs where
it's free to get us off the streets.
think they should make it easier for young people to find somewhere
to be with friends, whether a sports centre or an arts & crafts
centre. I also think that poorer families should have a better chance
to get their children into college.
think they should spend it by building centres etc where young people
of different religions can meet i.e. youth club thing etc.
think they should spend it on more facilities in each town, whether
or not the town is big or small. The money should be spent on underage
nightclubs so there are no people under 18 in any other nightclubs,
also I think there should be leisure complex's similar to the Odyssey
in Belfast, in more cities in Northern Ireland.
think they should spend it on things such as putting youth clubs
into our community for us young ones to go.
think they should spend it through schools and concentrate on the
education of the students.
think they should spend more money on sports facilities.
think they should spend the extra money on paying tuition fees for
young people going to university
think they should spend the extra money on more activities for young
teenagers & children. More outdoor and leisure activities. Also
trips away, for a week/weekend. Something nice & interesting.
think they should spend the money on making more things for young
people e.g. better parks, ice bowl's , better leisure centres.
think they should spend the money on places where teenagers can
hangout on weekends which will keep them off the streets. Also if
there were more night clubs for 15-17 year olds. It would stop the
making of fake ID's which everyone has around here, and less underaged
teens wouldn't try to sneak into clubs for over 18's
think they should spend the money on trying to get more public places
for teenagers to go and meet up with other religions, and race.
For example they should build more community centre like a snooker
club, or cinema.
would like to see things like astro turf pitches for the kids to
the government were to spent more money on young people on Northern
Ireland, I think they should spend it on education, university fees,
skilled, techniqued tutors, social events, facilities and for those
who are disabled.
they made more places for young one's to hang round with each other
more mixed people would get on with each other.
not really sure, but I do think that families with less money should
be getting something extra because I have seen the effect that causes
when they haven't [to] do things, others do. And I guess on mixed
youth clubs or something, but I don't think the activities are working
or will work.
education, have better and more places for young people to go instead
of hanging around.
schools and more places for us to do because the government always
spends money on stupid things!!!
community communication. Cross community events.
facilities which are already available e.g. football parks.
health service, education and roads creating prospects for those
who want to work. Deal with crime on the streets. Children 9-10-11-12-13-14-15
should not be at rooming the streets. Parents must see they have
school building, getting more books for library, starting up more
after school classes.
school facilities and providing more places to go in the evening,
especially in the summer.
school facilities. More places to take part in leisure activities.
the quality of teaching in schools.
sports facilities. Building more places for young people to go.
the recreational facilities in areas.
activity centres with mixed religions like even as non alcoholic
bar where young people can be on a Friday & Saturday night instead
of on streets getting drunk!
education, we have to pay for things like files, file blocks, small
things that all add up. Fees should definitely be lowered. Possibly
more youth schemes, educational or not.
education. Also in building youth centers for older teenagers(15-19)
to get them off street corners. Also more hostels and staff for
teenagers who feel stressed and annoyed at home.
finding places for young people to go at night that isn't church
helping all young people get a good education, no matter how smart
they are, race, or disability.
more social places such as arcades, cinemas etc
In particular areas away from the city centre.
my own opinion, I think they should open up places, so young people
could sit in on a Friday or Saturday night and enjoy the company
of others, instead of drinking down the street; that way there would
be less incidents of drunken disorderly youngsters and frightened
elderly men and women.
new ways of teaching. More publicity for youth groups.
prospects like the EMA to encourage young people to school. He could
also spend it on fixing or enhancing school and techs.
schools (secondary schools as they don't have that much in them
as gammers do) drop in centers. Couselling for teenagers with problems.
schools and more facilities.
schools, play areas like parks, more football fields.
schools, mixed religion activities.
community projects involving interesting activities e.g. bowling,
crosstalk cases etc.
in cinemas, having alleys for young people to socialize in more
areas. Spending more money on hiring professionals to spend time
with children who are having problems either at school or at their
in places where teenagers can go to socialise, hang out. More courses,
youth clubs, etc.
depends how much money, but generally places for entertainment -
cinemas, bowling, go-karting, paintballing etc.
should be spent on education and also in improving leisure facilities
for young people.
sporting facilities and any one where there are social problems
especially suicide. There needs to be money spent on these areas,
thus helping to support these young people.
by giving them so much each week or month to help them buy the things
they need or build more things to keep young people busy and out
of trouble and to stop them becoming bored.

at the problems that affect teenagers and come up with a resolution
to help them.
university fees rather than raising them.
a complex where young people should be able to hang out with cinema
and bowling and arcades something sort of like the odyssey only
you don't get through out at half past nine!
more places for teenagers to hang out so they aren't on the streets
and getting into trouble even just a hall or room to go to and not
have to pay lots of money to get in.
more places for teenagers, more underage discos etc, more youth
clubs so we can meet lots of people.
more places for us to go to, e.g. Cinemas, clubs.
more places for young people to go and get them off the streets.
more places for young people to go
playgrounds & parks safer for children.
more places for teenagers to go and have fun without having to spend
a lot of money.
schools more enjoyable so more people went all the time instead
of making excuses to stay off.
some websites for help and advice run by young people (i.e. teenagers
administrate and moderate the site), with forums for discussion
of problems. More areas for shelter from rain with sofas and/for
rooms. More video game instruments.
sure that every school leaver can get a place on a training course
that [they] have chosen. Better organised activities and trips for
6th form colleges to do at eves year out to work in fields you're
interested in work experiences for about one week in every school,
including grammar schools.
more places for teenagers to go more entertainment.
more youth files.
the community better for young people and more places for them to
young people are resorting to alcohol because they feel that being
drunk makes their life more fun, which in a very boring town, Whitehead
is true. Drunken in spawns violence so obviously more things for
young people to do. I advice something musical. Music brings people
together I find.
more community/youth centres to bring more young people closer together.
some more youth clubs or * [?] or "do up" existing youth clubs to
house better facilities.
places for young teenagers e.g. cinemas, bowling alleys. Improve
school meals - make them more healthy.
Social Activity Centres.
for more youth centres and for organized activities.
on activities for young people is should be the main priority. Give
them a place to meet up with friends instead of resorting to standing
at a street corner causing havoc purely because they are bored.
on social activities. (Cinemas etc). More money for schools.
should be put into church, youth clubs to attract more of the youth
of the street and give them something to do at the weekends, while
they can meet new friends and hear something that can give value
to their lives.
activities aimed at teenagers, or a youth employment scheme aimed
at improving the community during the holidays to keep teenagers

bowling alleys and under 18 dubs.
cinemas, leisure plexus, discos.
clubs (youth centres).
community centers to take people off the streets to reduce crime.
community centres and youth centres in areas near to people, as
they have nowhere to go all week. Tennis courts, crazy golf, hockey
and football pitches, badminton courts etc: go-carting to cut down
joy-riding. These all needed in working class areas especially,
as young people have nowhere to go. This would cut down on crime
and drug taking within 15-18 year olds.
Community Youth-groups, promoting cross community relationships.
social outposts (eg Cinemas).
cross community projects for young people of all ages.

education and more jobs.
education opportunities and more activities for young people to
take part in.

the student picks the subject.

help in betting a job without qualifications.
jobs and training for any religion.

go to and relax at any time of the day.
money put into sports, school to have better equipment.
money should be spent on social and cross community centers , to
take children of the streets and teach them about alcohol, drug
abuse and people they could talk to about their home life and different
issues. Teenagers feel they need to talk about.

government should be spend[ing] money on young people in Northern
Ireland by building youth centres around Northern Ireland.
government should pay more attention to areas much like mine. We
may as well be living in curfew as we can't leave or do nothing.
If we do, we end up getting hurt, there is no parks or pitches,
nothing for young ones that is why majority join paramilitary &
take drugs /drink & end up in dead end life.
government should spend more money on things for teenagers younger
than 18 to do but I also feel that a lot more money should be invested
in the education system and the health system -these are really
important to everyone not just young people.
should spend the extra money on more youth groups, on better action
against bullying, such as trained counse[l]lors in schools, on better
sex education and drug awareness in schools and on bringing children
from different communities and religions together to make them more
aware of diversity.
should be more resources for teenagers.

people off the sheets, possibly creating summer schemes but also
centers for young people to go at night times.
should be under 18's club in smaller towns & villages.
could spend the extra money on getting more replace to go.

cinemas, parks or bowling centres to give young people a wider choice
of things that they could do.
should be spending more money on activity centres for the younger
people to go to and restrict them from the streets.
should build lots of U18 clubs for us to go to. Also there isn't
a lot of amusements to go to. We only have the sports hall and the
cinema which gets boring after a while.

should put more money into creating better and more interesting
job opportunities for those leaving school.

should put more money into further or higher education, because
so many people start university in debt or cannot afford to go to
university at all. More money should be put into cross-community
should spend it by building fun things for teenagers to do such
as bowling or cinemas, it would mean less reason to cause trouble.
should spend it in smaller areas. I live in the country my nearest
town has no facilities for us youth. This is why we hang around
places, and sometimes get in for trouble doing so.
should spend it on a lot more activities for us young one's today.
should spend it on facilities in youth clubs e.g. more trips to
places. They should also spend it to help to encourage teenager
to socialize with different people with different nationalities
should spend it on having more leisure facilities built for young
people so they can go somewhere else instead of getting into trouble.
should spend it on more local amenities in areas for young people
and not so far outside our communities. They shouldn't cost as much
either because not every young person has the money to spend and
parents cannot hand out that kind of money everyday.
should spend it on young peoples hobbies and on leisure centres.
should spend money on the young people who are homeless, have substance
addictions and to educate young people more about sex education.
should spend more money on trying to dissuade arguments between
different ethnic communities and maybe they could "open up young
peoples minds" to the fact that everything professed by the media
is not to be taken for granted, and that drugs and alcohol is not
a social preference but maybe to certain people as being something
enjoyable amongst many a human.
should spend the extra money building more centers for us.
should spend the extra money on children's hospitals and on funding
for schools. Also, some money should be spent on entertainment for
should spend the extra money on more activities for teenagers.

i.e. poorer areas. They should provide something that will give
teenagers something enjoyable to do, rather than staging on the
streets. Most teenagers in my area/city have nothing better to do.
should try and give more kids to do on weekends such as youth clubs
should use it to fund more activities/ meeting places for young

people in more areas and should be open longer hours.
