Southside Travellers Action Group (STAG)
Our Children and Young People’s Programme (CYPP) works with young people within a wide age group. We recognise that younger young people require a different programme for older teenagers.
We also recognise that within the Traveller Community some young people will have adult responsibilities and may have different needs & interests. Within the context of our youth work practice, we seek to build relationships of trust and positive regard through focused developmental programmes and activities in a safe and supportive space which build the capacity of young people to actively engage in decision making and ownership.How to connect with this service → Changes to our service due to Coronavirus →

Tell me more about your service
Our Children and Young People Program (CYPP) provides a safe space where Young People meet and communicate with one another while enjoying the activities and learning new skills.
We operates from a Critical Social & Education Model to provide targeted and regular youth programmes for Travellers, settled and young people from various cultural backgrounds in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown.
Starting from the individual needs of Travellers young people we design develop and deliver programmes which are culturally appropriate which acknowledge and respect the experience of being a Traveller in today’s society. Within our group, we seek to build relationships of trust and positive regard through focused developmental programmes and activities.
