NYCI, with funding from Community Foundation Ireland, commissioned this research which was awarded to the Centre for Youth Research and Development, Department of Applied Social Studies, Maynooth University in 2021.

The research, which had the support of the Balbriggan Integration Forum, Foróige, the ETB, faith groups, and many others stakeholders connected to Balbriggan was initiated after Balbriggan was identified as one of the most ethnically diverse communities in Ireland, but with limited youth work opportunities relative to its population. The research focused on what Black young people and community members had to say about their lives. From the outset it was clear that one of the hardest challenges for the young people was dealing with the perceptions of others. What emerged through the research was the value that the young people placed on how they built a community of support for each other.
