Foróige is Ireland’s leading Youth Organisation with over 50,000 young people involved annually. Foróige aims to enable young people to develop personally and within the community. Foróige has many different services including Foróige projects, Foróige Juniors (10-12yrs), Foróige Clubs & Cafés (12-18yrs), and the Big Brother Big Sister program. Here in County Meath, Foróige clubs are spread throughout the county.
There are established Foróige clubs in Oldcastle, Kells, Athboy, Navan, Lobbinstown, Duleek, Slane, Mosney, and Ratoath. Foróige Clubs offer members (12yrs+) to meet socially once a week for 1-2hrs during the school term. The members take responsibility for the running of the club and organising activities. This is achieved through a Youth Committee within the club. Clubs are supported by trained adult volunteers.

We intervene early to support young people’s mental health. We are the only mental health service in the country with an exclusive focus on 12-25-year-olds. Our early intervention model provides tangible supports for young people before they reach the point of acquiring a formal mental health diagnosis.
We have 13 Jigsaw Services in communities across Ireland providing mental health support to young people, and we are continuing to grow year on year.
We educate and equip communities to help young people. We believe that future resilience is based on early intervention and mentoring. We are working to build strong communities where young people feel they have real emotional connections with their friends, families, teachers, and peers.
We work with the best mental health experts using an evidence-driven methodology. We employ evidence-based models, devised by some of the world’s leading mental healthcare experts, based on extensive research.
