Crosscare Youth Services Working with Young People

Crosscare works with young people through our youth work services in Bray, Arklow, Dun Laoghaire, Dundrum, Finglas, Ballymun, Ballybough, Swords, Clondalkin, Ronanstown, Lucan and a Traveller-specific project in Tallaght. These services create supports for young people at times and places that meet their specific needs. Activities range from informal drop-in and youth cafés, to more structured programmes and access educational, personal and health supports.

We also manage 12 Garda Youth Diversion Projects that support young people who have offended or who are at risk of entering the criminal justice system.   Our young participants are real ambassadors for their peers and their communities.

Our Youth Outreach Drug Education team have produced the following resources:

The Sleep Programme – a resource for working with young people around sleep – The Sleep Programme Resource

Here Come the Girls – a resource for working with young women around the issue of alcohol use –Here comes the girls
