Student Support -
The covid – 19 pandemic has affected all citizens and that the impact on our young people has been severe.  This Council recognises the difficulties faced by those young people in full – time third level education, both at universities and further education colleges, who, because of restrictions, are unable to attend classes in person or live in student accommodation which they have paid for.  This Council recognises that many university students have found themselves suffering financial hardship which has caused significant distress and led to poor mental health.  This Council calls on university accommodation providers and private landlords who have not provided rent waivers to do immediately and calls on the Department for the Economy and Department of Finance to develop and fund a Student Support Grant for all full time third level students, many of whom cannot gain any employment at this time and are unable to claim benefits.
