What is Project Belturbet?
There is a fresh optimism in town as a result of a newly formed broad based committee. Consisting of members from our local community groups and businesses.
Our intent is to deliver a sustainable future for Belturbet. Through a programme of future upgrades and improvements, this will promote and develop the town.
We have defined the following mission statement:
To engage in activities to promote and develop the town of Belturbet and its environs. To liaise with local organisations, government agencies and local authorities in order to administer projects designed to bring socio/economic benefits to the town of Belturbet.
How do we plan on achieving this?
The Project Belturbet committee meet regularly and are keen to have new people and any ideas brought to the table. Within the committee we form steering groups to co-ordinate future activities and projects. Projects happing at the moment include: youth café, signage, media hubs/apps and marketing ideas, CCTV, upgrading picnic areas and walks within Belturbet.
This is not just another committee…..It’s a Commitment to Belturbet!!!
At the moment we are updating a data base of all businesses and community groups in Belturbet. Do you want to be on the list? email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a private message to this page with your information or business card.

Bounce Back Youth Service Is now providing Detached Youth work in Belturbet two evenings per week.
The detached youth work element of this service will be carried out by staff members of youth work Ireland by being present on the streets of Belturbet on key nights when we know the most at-risk young people are hanging around the streets.
Detached youth work is a distinct form of youth work, it uses the principles and practices of informal education to engage young people in constructive dialogue within a broad agenda of personal and social development. It seeks to work on and from young people’s “territory”, meaning detached youth workers work where young people have chosen to be, whether is on the streets or shopping centres.
Our detached youth workers will engage with young people on the streets and develop relationships with these young people. We provide confidential advice, information and support the following:
• Education, Employment and training
• Sexual Health
• Drugs and alcohol use/misuse, including information on drugs and the law
• Crime diversion including anti-social behaviour and its consequences
• Counselling, dealing with issues such as stress and depression
• Family and peer issues.
