Youth and Sport Development Service

DDLETB aims to provide a wide range of supports that enable the delivery and coordination of high quality educational, sporting, recreational and developmental programmes, projects and services to disadvantaged young people.   This is done in partnership with local communities, voluntary groups and voluntary youth organisations such as Crosscare, Foróige and YMCA and we have a strong history of collaboration with local county councils.

Youth Work is a planned programme of education to enhance the personal and social development of young people which is complementary to their formal, academic or vocational education and training.
