Planet Youth in the Community

The important thing to remember about Planet Youth is that it is all about communities working together. We have all heard the phrase ‘it takes a village to raise a child’. Once we get the information from the surveys its really important that we start to look at how we can reinforce the things that are working really well and reduce the impact of the things that are causing problems for young people. The Planet Youth North Dublin Support Network is really key to making that happen. This team is led by our newly appointed Prevention Coordinator; David Creed; who brings decades of experience in the area especially from his years as Service Manager of Jigsaw Nth Dublin before heading up Planet Youth. Every one of the Planet Youth Support Network are passionate about improving the quality of life for young people and their families and have been doing that for years. We expect other members to join our support network as we go along but here are our core members below :
