The Glor Project

The Glor Project

Glór is core funded by TUSLA to work to support young people experiencing serious and life changing challenges.  The majority of Glór participants, in 2018, were at Hardiker Level 3+4.  Across the spectrum of Hardiker, young people referred to Glór were at risk of entering Residential Care, were being discharged from Residential Care, had very low levels of school attendance, were engaged in serious anti social activities in their communities, at risk of entering the juvenile justice system , experiencing difficulties in socialisation, difficulties in working with others and at risk of not having the opportunity to reach their potential due to family or their own actions or other negative factors.

In 2018, Glór supported 25 young people to participate in a range of activities including horse riding, equine therapy, surfing, outdoor education and Informal education, community arts, sports, group work, water sports, Go Karting, Bowling, Tunneling, Archery and Airsoft, High Ropes climbing, quads, beach walks, golfing and cycling.

Glór hosted and facilitated two Youth Participation days in SWWFRC in February and November 2018 with 30-40 young people and up to 10 staff. Both of which were hugely successful and feedback was very positive. Glór applied and were assessed for an Investing in children Award in 2018 and officially received this in July in which local press were invited and there was a small ceremony. Glor can now use the Investing in Children Award symbol on their paperwork and flyers.Glór applied and were successful to present at the Tusla showcase for those working with Low to Medium Hardiker Level 4 young people. Glór received a great reception, lots of questions and a lot of positive feedback on the work they are doing.
