Rua supports young people who have found themselves involved in offending behaviour.
Central to Rua is the trusting relationships built between our team and the young people. This is achieved through a youth work model, which allows us to support them to make good life choices. We work both one-to-one and in small groups offering practical support, personal development and moving young people towards further education or employment.
Rua is the Irish word for "red" or something which is "alive" or "strong". We believe these young people are full of life and strength and have something important to offer to the world. Through this programme, we support them to live up to their full potential, free from the justice system.
