The cross community Youth Development Programme is designed to increase each young person’s vocational skills, personal development, employability and social development.

The year-long REGENER8 programme will provide a range of Level 1 and 2 accredited qualifications, tailored work experience, volunteering projects as well as the opportunity to take part in events, fun activities and trips to promote social inclusion and peace and reconciliation.

Speaking about the launch, General Manager Liam Devine explained, “This new programme is extremely important not just for Clanrye Group but also for the services already working in the South Armagh and Newry City area.
