Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS - By EIMEAR DODD

CROSSCARE’S East Wick­low Youth Ser­vice re­cently launched their new youth cen­tre on the Main Street in Rath­drum.

Jessica Byrne cut the rib­bon on the In­spire Youth Cen­tre with Katie Byrne and Natasha Shor­tall. The ser­vice has been oper­at­ing in the vil­lage for the past five years and this new premises will be a welcome ad­di­tion to the com­mu­nity. Young peo­ple in Rath­drum have lim­ited access to ameni­ties and ac­tiv­i­ties, and given the lim­ited pub­lic trans­port, it is im­por­tant that they have access to a ser­vice which is specif­i­cally for them. Cur­rently, East Wick­low Youth Ser­vice works with four groups of young peo­ple and are hop­ing to open In­spire Youth Cen­tre more of­ten from Septem­ber on­wards. East Wick­low Youth Ser­vice said they are look­ing for­ward to work­ing with par­ents and other com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions in the new premises and that they are de­lighted with the sup­port they have al­ready had from busi­nesses and com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the area.
