Detached Youth Work

Limerick Youth Service has three detached youth work projects based in Ballycummin, Garryowen and Limerick City Centre.

What is Detached Youth Work?

  • Detached Youth Work engages with young people at a time and a space that suits them, be it a street corner, park or outside a shop.
  • Detached Youth Workers routinely visit these areas and gain the trust of young people by talking to them and explaining who they are and what they do.
  • The resulting relationship, based on mutual respect, is a productive and effective method at engaging with young people.
