We have an Assessment & Day Treatment Centre at Trabeg Lawn, Douglas which provides an assessment & Tier 3 service for Young People aged 14 - 23 years, including Family Programmes.  Our Residential centre at Cara Lodge, Enniskeane provides treatment for up to 6 Young Boys aged 14 - 18 years old with serious substance misuse & co - existing psycho -social challenging issues.  The Youth Enterprise Scheme (YES) at Tramore Road provides training for up to 12 Young people aged 16 - 18 years, who are continuing their education & pursuing Leaving Cert & FETAC courses.

Established since 1999

In 2013 a major overhaul of our premises at Mary Street was undertaken following a grant from the Loyola Foundation.  We now have a fully functional Integrated Family Support Services providing Aftercare, Family Groups & Interagency meetings in the city centre. 

All fundraising is allocated to further service developments.

In 2014 we have replaced the Polytunnel at Cara Lodge, the young people are involved daily with the horticulture on site. 

In 2015 a new Teaching/ Counselling facility was completed at Cara Lodge to provide 4 new classrooms, an Arts & Crafts Room & facilities for hosting family sessions.  This will allow further in-house developments planned for 2016 to upgrade recreational facilities for the young residents.

In Tramore Rd, an innovative hydrophonic indoor horticultural area has also been recently installed, which will allow the trainees to engage in alternative training for their FETAC awards.

In Spring 2016 we commenced work on the installation of a fully functional training kitchen at our premises in Tramore Rd, this will enable an additional FETAC Level 4 Award to be offered in Catering in conjunction with the FETAC Level 4 Major Award & FETAC Level 4 Health & Fitness Award.
