Anchor Service

The Anchor service is Active Connections' short term respite service. During times of turbulence, Anchor is designed to give young people in crisis a place and, more importantly, the time and space to reflect on their personal situations.


Multi Activity Mini-expeditions - Our programmes are run over 3 days/2 nights. Participants sleep out on both nights. We will cook each meal in the outdoors and explore some of the most inaccessible and impressive regions of Ireland on foot and over water. Participants will be given the opportunity to see places and experience things that the majority of the population miss out on.
