Tierney welcomes launch of new ‘off the streets’ mobile hub

SDLP Derry Councillor Brian Tierney has welcomed the launch of a new mobile youth facility that will provide services to young people in the greater Galliagh and Shantallow areas that currently lack facilities.

Cllr Tierney, who is a member of the management board of ‘Off the Streets’, said:

“The new Off the Streets mobile hub is a fantastic new initiative that aims to positively engage with young who may have fallen away from Youth facilities for a variety of reasons.

“There are communities across this area with little or no facilities for young people. Rather than abandoning those young people, we’re bringing services to them in their community and in surroundings where they feel comfortable.

“There is fantastic youth work going on across the outer north area . Hopefully this will compliment that work and engage with people who aren’t involved in the traditional youth service environments. The goal here is to listen to young people and offer courses, educational opportunities etc. that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to access.
