Major new youth service announced for Belturbet

A major new youth service has just been announced for Belturbet in County Cavan.

It’s an extension of the Bounce Back Youth Service which currently operates in some towns throughout the county, and is managed by Youth Work Ireland and the ISPCC. Belturbet has been identified as having a lack of dedicated youth services and support workers, and a dedicated youth drop-in cafe or youth space.

Under the new project, three youth workers will be based in Belturbet to provide services which support young people experiencing difficulties with drug and alcohol abuse, anti-social behaviour and mental health.

The project will also involve the development of a Youth Resilience Group Work Programme to help young people cope with the challenges of life today.

Maureen McIntyre, who is the Youth Officer with Cavan Monaghan ETB who are administering the project, says a number of concerns were raised about the lack of youth services in Belturbet in the past.

We will be looking for people who are willing to train with a Foróige Development worker to be leaders of the club.  Training is provided free of charge and becoming a leader can also help leaders gain new skills and work experience.
