History

There is a long history of collaboration between agencies, services and the community, and a strong tradition of good working relationships between health, education, social services and the local authority in the Young Knocknaheeny (YKABC) catchment area. 

 

The YKABC Consortium, and later the Programme was built on and from resources, skills and people already living and working in the community. It provided an opportunity for likeminded individuals to develop a comprehensive prevention and early intervention programme.
