Despite the fun and sun this year’s summer is bringing, this time of the year can be a long and lonely stretch for some young people, especially for those who may not have a very wide social circle, who might find it difficult to socialise or who may be isolated or who may have sensory or processing conditions, such as experiencing Autism. In response to this, Foróige South Dublin has recently secured some funding via South Dublin County Council’s Health and Wellbeing Initiative 2018, to organise a short series of Pop Up Youth Events for 12-18 yr olds.
