The Ely Centre provides Youth and Trans generational services through a range of activities for young adults aged 16-25. These services are provided as a mechanism to address the legacy and cluster of problems that "The Troubles” has left behind on the next generation from those families most effected through bereavement or injury of older family members.
Furthermore to this we provide events specifically targeted for young adults and their parents as part of our transgenerational work.
