Bounce Back Youth Service: South East and West Cavan

What we do: 

There are two elements to the Bounce Back Youth Service; The Rural Resilience Service (ISPCC) and The Detached Youth Work Element (Youth Work Ireland Cavan Monaghan)

The Detached Youth Work element is carried out by staff members from Youth Work Ireland Cavan Monaghan by being present on the streets of Belturbet, Ballyconnell, Ballyjamesduff, Virginia and Bailieborough on key nights when we know the most at-risk young people are hanging around the streets, amenities or local hotspots and possibly engaging in anti-social behaviour.  We are present on the streets on key nights when we know the most at-risk young people are hanging around the streets.
