Direct support for young people

Our Jigsaw Service in Roscommon Town provides a welcoming space for young people to get information or have a chat with a support worker. If a young person wants support, our staff are there to listen, without making judgements, and to provide supportive guidance. We also provide information and advice to anyone who is worried about a friend or young person in their life.

Working with young people

At Jigsaw, we believe it’s vital to make sure that young people’s voices are heard. Our Youth Advisory Panel (YAP) represent us and take part in decision making at every level.

Working with the community

As well as directly helping young people in tough times, we want to work towards a community that is supportive of mental health and well being. Presentations and talks in schools, workplaces and community groups aim to open up a discussion on mental health and raise people’s awareness of the support that Jigsaw Roscommon can offer.

We also work to improve the support available to young people by connecting with the many organisations throughout the county. The aim is to make sure that young people have better access to support in their local town / area.

The group holds an informal meeting on the first Friday of every month at various venues in the West of Ireland.
The meetings give Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual people an opportunity to meet together in relaxed and friendly atmosphere and to discuss group events and gay issues. People attend from Sligo, Donegal, Mayo, Leitrim, Roscommon, Galway and the midlands. On average 25 people attend, new faces appear regularly and are always welcome.
The group organises social outings and events, some of which are discos, several times a year, in various venues in the West of Ireland. Please see our website for more information.
