The WRDATF is the lead agency responsible for the introduction and implementation of the Planet Youth Icelandic primary prevention model in the West of Ireland.
There are currently three Planet Youth pilot sites operating: Planet Youth Galway, Planet Youth Mayo and Planet Youth Roscommon. These five-year pilot programmes have been developed by the WRDATF with extensive support from partner agencies in the region. Steering committees have been established for each of the sites, consisting of funders and strategic partners, all of whom are committed to the development of Planet Youth in the region.
The five-year pilot programmes are running between 2018 and 2022, with three large-scale surveys to be conducted in 2018, 2020 and 2022.
