Leanbh was set up to address child begging in Dublin. Leanbh is a service for children, young people and parents who are begging or at risk of begging on the streets.
 
Who does Leanbh work with?
  • Children and young people from the wider Roma and Travelling Community
  • Children from new communities seeking asylum in Ireland
  • Children who are experiencing social, emotional or behavioural difficulties associated with such transitions
  • The service works in partnership with the statutory and other services
Mentoring
The mentoring programme develops a young person's self esteem and social skills through support and encouragement from a volunteer mentor. The Mentor spends time with the young person each week to chat, have fun and to help the young person overcome any difficulties he/she may have.

community based one to one support service.
 
     
The ISPCC provides a free, comprehensive, community based one to one support service (including out of hours access) to children and young people who may be experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties. This is provided by professional ISPCC support workers. Anyone concerned about a child can make a referral to the service. This includes parents, professionals and young people themselves.  Visits happen weekly and usually last for about 6 months, but this can change to suit the needs of each child.
