About Us


The Youth Engagement Service @ Our Space, based on Shipquay Street is funded by the Public Health Agency. YES is for Young People throughout the Derry City area to access services and programmes which promote positive mental health, physical health and wellbeing within the one physical space.

Overall the YES aims to provide a safe haven for young people to access education, advice and support services on any issues they may be facing without fear of prejudice, judgement or exploitation. We also provide an outreach service for those who can’t access the city centre.
