Young Persons Probation (YPP) projects aim to add value to the work of the Probation Service. YPP projects work with children and young people between the ages of 12-18 and provide a range of services to young offenders in local communities, including training and education, mentoring, and offender management programmes. The projects support and motivate young people to address the cause of their offending behaviour and to make positive changes in their lives so as to avoid further offending. Some of the areas of work include educational needs; self-care living skills; drug and alcohol misuse, and emotional and mental health.
Four YPP projects are funded through the PEIL. These are:
Le Chéile is a volunteer nationwide mentoring and family support service, which works with young people involved in or at risk of offending. The project affects positive change in the lives of young people and their families, by providing Mentoring, Youth Justice and Family Support Services.
Céim ar Chéim
The Céim ar Chéim Education and Training Day Centre is situated in Moyross on the north side of Limerick City. This project caters for young persons placed on probation, young offenders (attached to the Garda Juvenile Liaison Programmes) and other young people considered to be at risk.
The Southill Outreach project engages with and supports young offenders, both in the community and in detention schools and centres, and other young people at risk of offending and/or re-offending. They assist young people to develop positive pro-social life styles. The project works with young people aged between 12 and 25 from Limerick City/County, Co. Clare and North Tipperary.
Dóchas don Óige
Dóchas don Óige deals with young people mainly from the Galway City/County area and environs who are offenders on probation or other persons considered to be at risk. The project provides FETAC accredited Education and Training course to the young adults/children.
