The YARC Project (Youth At Risk Carlow):
The YARC Project provides support and advocacy for young people. The project works with young people to increase their capacity to recognise, manage and reduce ‘at risk’ behaviour. It aims to help young people identify their strengths and capabilities and guide them towards activities and groups that are beneficial to their social and personal development. Our primary focus is to work with young people from 12 -18 year old age group and their families, but not excluding other age groups where an assessment of risk indicates that they can benefit from our support.

We run a group for young people from 12 to 18 years who have ASD. The aim of the group is to provide support for the young person to improve their social and personal development through a support group. The group is run by Carlow Regional Youth Services and takes place in The Vault on Burrin St., Carlow. It takes place on Tuesdays from 5-6.30. The group is for young people who have mild to moderate ASD. This is determined by their psychologist. Your psychologist can refer the young person by letter or call Anne-Marie for more information on 086-7716597.
