The Link’s Youth Programme specifically works with marginalized, socially excluded and at risk young people from areas of high deprivation in Newtownards. Many of the young people have had disastrous educational experiences and are ostracised from homes and families. Many are struggling to find a sense of purpose of any type. Our dedicated staff walk, in many senses, alongside these youths at key crossroads in their lives. Our youth work takes the form of a daily drop-in, a mentoring programme, and a Young Parent Support Programme. Our programmes are based upon needs expressed by the young people themselves. There are so many more needs Project 23 could respond to if we had greater resource.
P23 is the Link’s Youth programme. Go to its Facebook page for what is happening.
