What We Do

Fast Forward

Fast Forward: YMCA/Díon Project

This is a 14 weeks Lifeskills Programme, held once a week throughout the year.  This Programme has been structured to allow young adults to start at any given point throughout the Programme. 

Run by the DíonProject (YMCA), Fast Forward aims to provide independent living skills to young adults.  The aim is to assist with the development of necessary skills needed to secure and maintain independent living, ultimately equipping young adults with the skills needed to successfully manage a home.
