Exchange House Travellers Service
We are an organisation of Travellers and settled people working together to provide services to Travellers in the Dublin area.
We provide Family Support, Youth Services, Drugs Counselling and Education programmes to members of the Traveller community in the Dublin area.
Our services come under four main programme areas, they are as follows:
Family Support Service
The Family Support Service provides a range of services: Social Work, Family Support and Welfare Rights information.
Travellers Youth Service is the main provider of Youth Services to the Traveller Community in the greater Dublin Area. Through social and personal education the Youth Service aims to ensure that as many young Travellers are able to reach their full potential through participation in youth activities.
Since 2003, Exchange House has provided addiction counselling to drugs users and their families.
Exchange House Centre for Education and Development.
In 2005, the Christian Brothers gave Exchange House the use of a premises on Great Strand Street, Dublin. Our experience with our target group, the most marginalized Travellers in the Dublin area, indicated that a specific initiative was necessary to engage our clients in a process of education and development which was appropriate to their needs and could offer them adequate support to ensure the most successful outcomes.
