Community Development-Renewal

CASPr (Community After Schools project)

CASPr is situated in the North East Inner City of Dublin.

The Project's activities represent a partnership approach at local level between community, local schools and service providers.  The Project has been developed through the vision and hard work of local workers and parents.
