Calling all youth organisations - take action on tobacco now!

Our 2020 training and funding opportunities are now open for applications and we want youth organisations across Ireland to get involved and drive the movement towards establishing Ireland’s first smoke free generation. 

  • The Irish Cancer Society X-HALE 2020 Youth Worker Training and Short Film Competition grant opportunities are now open for applications! 
  • We are now taking bookings for our free X-HALE 2020 Training for Youth Workers and Volunteers.
  • Applications for funding are now open for The X-HALE 2020 Short Film Competition.

What's involved?

Would your youth organisation, project, club, service or Youthreach centre be interested in tackling issues around young people and tobacco?

The X-HALE Short Film Competition is an exciting opportunity for youth groups to spread the word about the impact of smoking by creating a youth-led short-film. Since 2011, the Irish Cancer Society has provided grant assistance, training and resources to over 327 youth organisations nationwide to support their participation in X-HALE.

X-HALE was awarded overall winner of the EU Health Awards 2018 by the European Commission for the innovative social dimension of the programme and the peer-to-peer approach to working with young people at risk of tobacco use. 

  • Before submitting your grant application, please read the X-HALE 2020 Short Film Competition Information to find out what's involved and learn about what's new for 2020!
