Detached youth outreach
A small team of Leaders goes out every Saturday night and seeks to engage with young people congregating in areas around Lisburn. Many of the young people have issues with alcohol or drugs and during COVID may not be complying with the appropriate regulations. Our leaders are encouraging them to behave safely and responsibly and give them the opportunity to join in with some of the more structured activities organised by Damask.
A character building and training programme for 14s to 18sWhile this programme has stopped due to COVID it is hoped to restart activities again as soon as possible
