Clane Community Projects
Clane Project Centre conducted a needs analysis of Clane in 2007 and the single most pressing need at that time was the issue of the ‘youth’ sector of the community with ‘no place to go, nothing to do without the interference of adults.’ In response to this CPC Clane Project Centre approached KYS Kildare Youth Services to assist and advise on a project that would provide a ‘place to go and things to do’ free of adult interference.
