Our Story

Candle Community Trust is a Community Project in Ballyfermot, Dublin 10. Established in 1978. Candle is a vibrant child centred service addressing the needs of young people.

Through the Educational, Social and Developmental programmes, Therapeutic space and Youth Service Candle is committed to meet the needs of all the young people and support them in reaching their full potential.

Our Vision

We believe that every young person can grow and develop emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially and spiritually in an environment that is welcoming, positive and accepting. Young people are the inspiration and it is them who determine what Candle is and how Candle is to be shaped into the future.  

Funding

To all the Funding agencies and external stakeholders who believe in our work and are supporting it, we are truly grateful. Without your help, Candle would not stand as it is today.

We acknowledge the Probation Service, CDYSB and CDETB, Tusla and the HSE for their commitment and ongoing support of Candle and its service provision.
