The youth services provide programmed activities directed at supporting each young person through the challenging times of growing up. It is a developmental approach with the key objectives of ensuring the young person has the skills, confidence and information to make informed choices and decisions as they grow.
Our youth services are available in various locations around County Wexford including Gorey, New Ross, Bunclody, Enniscorthy and Wexford Town. These services and supports to young people are provided in community youth projects, voluntary youth clubs and specific youth programmes such as Slaney Garda Youth Diversion project, Young Women’s programmes and the LGBTI service. We also offer supports through our counselling service.
To compliment this work our Youth information service provides a range of information relevant to young people and their parents or guardians.
All our youth services are supported by either the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, Health Service Executive, Irish Youth Justice Service or Tusla. Other supports are also provided the Department of Social Protection through the Community Employment scheme.
