South Meath Area Response To Teenagers
GYDPs are community-based multi-agency crime prevention initiatives, which seek to divert young people who have become involved in crime/anti-social behaviour and to support wider preventative work within the community and with families at risk. They aim to bring about the conditions whereby the behavioural patterns of young people towards law and order can develop and mature through positive interventions and interaction with the project. They are primarily targeted at 12-17 year old “at risk” youths in communities where a specific need has been identified and where there is a risk of them remaining within the justice system. The project also works with 8-11 year olds in a preventative manner. Our Family Support Worker commenced 2019. Commitment and passion is key to ensure each family are supported and empowered during times of crisis. The project is co-funded by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund (ESF) as Part of the ESF Programme for Employability, inclusion and Learning (PEIL) 2014-2020 and the Dormant Accounts Fund.
