Newbridge Youth Project

There are a variety of groups running in the project and different activities for

young people to engage with. The activities employed differ, based on the needs and wants of the group and the individuals in each group.  

There is a strong importance placed on the building of professional and trusting relationships between the worker and young person and for that reason sessions are often of a non-formal and in-formal nature.

Needs or interest based programmes can often result from these informal interactions. These programmes are  driven by the group based on what they perceive  as beneficial for them to learn in order to progress in life and develop holistically.
