The HUB GYDP is based in Carlow town and works from our different buildings.
What do we do?
The HUB GYDP is community based; multi-agency crime prevention initiatives which seek to divert young people from becoming involved (or further involved) in anti-social and/or criminal behaviour by providing suitable activities to facilitate personal, positive, social and personal development, civic responsibility and long-term employability prospects.
This work is done through:
- One to one work
- Small group work (as required)
- Interventions that are planned looking at offending behaviour, substance misuse, peer relations, family relationships, education/training, attitudes, behaviors and leisure time.
