The STREET project is a befriending service held at the One77 facility on York Road on 6 evenings a week. It is a safe social environment for individuals often with special needs and requirements to interact and socialise.

  • Mondays & Thursdays from 5.30pm to 8.00pm - STREET SENIORS (Those aged 11+, ie Secondary School age)
  • Tuesdays & Fridays from 5.30pm to 7.30pm - STREET JUNIORS (Those aged below 11, ie Primary School age)
  • Wednesdays from 5.30pm to 7.30pm - STREET ASD (A very small group aimed a those with autism)
  • Saturdays from 3.00pm to 5.00pm - STREET Families (A wide ranging group where families are encouraged to stay and socialise together.  Our Family Support Staff are in attendence at these sessions)

We aim to give young people the essential support and encouragement to help them overcome issues with social skills, self esteem and emotional trauma. Everyone at STREET is understanding and supportive of each others situation.

With the help of our highly skilled support workers and volunteers we try to build on friendship, social skills, and confidence. We do this by encouraging the young people to participate in numerous fun activities including; playing on the Nintendo Wii, cooking, computing and watching DVD's, amongst other activities. In an effort to restore their confidence and guide them on to the right path.
