StreetReach will take place on 1st – 5th July in Carrickfergus, Larne and the surrounding coastal areas in 2020.
With a focus on youth at risk, the main activities will take place in communities where antisocial behaviour has been identified and the opportunity for healthy community action is present.
The work will be carried out by teams of young people from across NI and further a field and in partnership with churches and community groups already working in their areas or who wish to begin new projects in the areas.
Activities will include: street cleaning, kids clubs, community BBQs, detached youth work, mural painting and more.
On 5th July we will hold community celebration events in the town areas we have been working in.
