    Abstract

    This report presents the outcome of a needs assessment with young people in West Wicklow, which was commissioned by Kildare Youth Services, through funding awarded to them by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs through the new Value for Money Review Sample Projects Scheme. The purpose of the consultation was to ascertain how young people in West Wicklow define their own priorities as well as to identify their needs in relation to youth services and supports. The research adopted a participatory and Rights-based approach, drawing particularly on a method known as Photo Voice, whereby participants are encouraged to visually document aspects of their lives using photographs, which are then used to stimulate a conversation. In total, 58 young people and nine adults took part in the study.
