High Voltage Project The House

The High Voltage Project is a Youth Diversion Project funded by the Dept. of Justice and the European Social Fund and is one of 120 projects funded nationally.

To assist young people aged 12-17 years old to stay free of crime through the provision of alternative activities. To work towards diversion from crime and anti-social behaviour and involvement with the juvenile justice system.

Success is achieved by developing our strengths not by limiting our weakenesses.

This project is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Union.

What we do:

Explore behaviour that is leading to risk.

Assist young people to develop their sense of community & family.

Provide young people with opportunities to move towards a positive path.

What we hope a young person achieves:

Finding new interests and the things they do best.

Removing obstacles and looking for positive opportunities.

We work in a multiagency basis and link in with other organisations to address needs such as education, mental health, emotional wellbeing, substance misuse.
