The HUB Youth Diversion Project

This project is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Union”

 The HUB YDP is based throughout Carlow County and works from our different buildings.

What do we do?

The HUB YDP 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 completed through:

  • One to one work
  • Small group work (as required)
