YAP Ireland CLG hosted a Morning Seminar in the Clayton Hotel in Galway on 14th June, which was attended by Young People, Parent / Carers, YAP Staff, the YAP Board and professionals from TULSA, HSE Disability and Mental Health in the West Region. The theme for the seminar was “I AM MORE – Working Together to ensure that Young People and Families meet their full potential”.
Speakers on the day included three amazing Young People – Jessica, Arina and Chantelle and a Parent Phyllis, all of whom once again inspired everyone with their honesty, bravery and their huge achievements. We also had speeches from Pat Dolan NUIG, Aidan Waterstone TUSLA and Mark O’Connor of Inclusion Ireland.
This seminar highlighted that the YAP Model works for all Young People and Families regardless of the challenges that they are facing in life. It was a great opportunity to showcase YAP’s skills in the range of services it provides and to bring to life the YAP Strategic Plan!
