Problematic substance use remains a critical social issue in Ireland. Recent developments in policy and strategy in relation to problematic substance use have seen a renewed debate on the approach, type and outcomes of different intervention strategies for individuals and communities (Keane et al., 2014; Munton et al., 2014). Over the past three years, Ballymun Youth Action Project (BYAP), in partnership with key statutory and community agencies, has developed and implemented the Boxing Clever Intervention Programme. In partnership with the UCD School of Applied Social Science Community Partnership Drugs Programme, BYAP and partner agencies made the decision to engage in an evaluative research process of the Boxing Clever Programme over a twelve month period in 2013/2014. This report presents the findings from this research project, with a particular focus on the structure, impact and outcomes of the Boxing Clever programme.
