Petition Closed

The Castlebar Youth Information Centre (aka The Kipp) is a vital resource for young people in County Mayo. It is one of the few outlets teenagers, especially younger teenagers have; an alcohol-free, informal, non-religious social space where they can meet and hang out with their friends, and also receive valuable information.

The Kipp is to close after Christmas 2011, and this will also result in job losses for the two staff of the centre.

We believe that the Kipp is a vital resource for young people, who without it will have little or no safe social spaces. We call on the government to provide the funding to prevent the closure of the Kipp.
