UBU Scheme


To provide out-of-school supports to young people in their local communities to enable them to overcome adverse circumstances and achieve their full potential by improving their personal and social development outcomes.


All young people are enabled to realise their maximum potential, by respecting their rights and hearing their voices, while protecting and supporting them as they transition from childhood to adulthood.

The UBU Your Place Your Space and the Youth Information Centre (YIC) Scheme are the primary schemes for targeted, staff-led, youth work provision in respect of out of school projects.

UBU Your Place Your Space aligns with the Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures National Policy Framework, the National Strategy on Children and Young People’s Participation in Decision-Making, and the LGBTI+ and National Youth Strategies.

KCETB currently administers funding for six UBU projects and one youth information centre as follows:
Four UBU Projects run by Carlow Regional Youth Services (CRYS)
Two UBU Projects and one YIC Project run by Ossory Youth
