Ballymun Youth Action Project. (1993) Ballymun Youth Action Project annual report 1992. Dublin: Ballymun Youth Action Project.

This report outlines the Ballymun Youth Action Plan's six aims and specific approaches to those aims taken in 1992. The Ballymun YAP aims to develop a community response to drug abuse, and in 1992 the YAP recruited local people to become company members who would ultimately serve on the management committee. It also produced an information pack for young people by young people from within the area, which included the fulltime employment of one local person. The YAP also engaged in continued dialogue with residents and groups regarding drug related issues in the community. The YAP aims to provide an information/ advice/ support service for people caught in the cycle of drug abuse and their families.

In 1992 234 individuals availed of these services, of which 138 were aged 17 and over, 50 were aged 16 and under and 46 were parents/ family members. This accounted for 2979 appointments during the year, with 540 other contacts made through outreach work, prison/ residential visits, home visits, street work and telephone contact. The YAP also aims to develop preventative services, particularly in relation to young people at risk or vulnerable to drug abuse and also to engage in community education in drug abuse. It also works closely with other voluntary and statutory groups providing community services and to facilitate research into drug abuse in the area.
