Local MLA Robin Swann has welcomed news of funding for a local project for young people.

He said the youth project for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people from Ballymena is to share in almost £300,000 of NI-wide Big Lottery funding as part of the Include Youth organization.

The project will help provide essential skills training in literacy, numeracy and ICT, he added.
