Welcome to Galway Diocesan Youth Services!
We were founded in the late 70's to meet the needs of homeless and marginalised young people at that time. Our ethos has always been to identify and meet the needs of families and young people in the community.
What we do
Today, GDYS runs the Number 4 Project, which aims to enhance the quality of young peoples lives by providing an effective and holistic response to a wide variety of issues pertaining to young people between the ages of 13 and 25 years.
The Number 4 Project provides a variety of supports for young people:
- Drop in centre (17 -25 year olds)
- Counselling service (15 - 25 year olds)
- Careers guidance (15 - 25 year olds)
- Accommodation support (18 - 25 year olds)
- Education support (13 - 25 year olds)
