Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy, has welcomed the news that the Off TheStreets new satellite hub at Fernabbey will be launched tomorrow Wednesday
She -“This hub will allow Off The Streets to reach more young people in the area and provide services to young people and families in this area. The general Fernabbey area does not have facilities such as a community centre but Apex housing association has made available a flat in the area to off the Streets to allow them to provide this service.
This forward thinking from a housing association must be welcomed and I congratulate them for this. It will allow Off The Streets to bring their particular unique brand of youth work to the area.
The new hub can only add to the service that Off The Streets already provide in the area and across the city in conjunction with their new mobile hub which allows them to take their service to areas that have absolutely no facilities.
Off The Streets are a service that are going from strength to strength and as a committee member I see first hand the great work that they do with many young people and this hub can only enhance this work;
I wish them every success with the future and thank Apex for all the support they have given the organisation.
