Introducing Positive Risk Taking

Raheny Hub and Coolock Hub - St. Michael's House

St. Michael's House developed a Hub service in 2013, and now there are 3 Hub services that support 26 young adults.  The Hub is an individualised community based service that supports young adults in becoming active members of their local communities, through education, employment and recreational activities.

The development of hubs involved a key focus on positive risk taking to ensure that the integration of people within the life of the community is done in a manner which recognises the ability of service users whilst addressing any challenges relating to safety.

Evidence of the very positive outcomes from this development are portrayed in a video illustrating the valued social roles that people have developed in the community.
