Community Afterschools Project (CASPr) is a community development agency based in Dublin’s North inner City and established in 1995.

Our mission is:
“To counter educational disadvantage in Dublin’s North East Inner City in order to contribute to the elimination of poverty in our community.”

Our objectives are to eliminate early school leaving among children, to provide accredited training and educational opportunities for educationally disadvantaged adults and to work in collaboration with organisations committed to the elimination of poverty and disadvantage in order to improve the physical, economic and social environments of the North East Inner City.

We pursue our aims and objectives by providing an after school programme from three locations, catering for 150 primary school children in five local schools and Community Employment that includes QQI certified training programmes in childcare and ECDL for 36 local people.

We also operate a Creche for 15 pre-school children. In addition we provide an Outreach Family Support Service to staff and parents and we provide these programmes through a variety of funding mechanisms.

CASPr also works closely with a range of community and statutory agencies to implement the Young People at Risk protocol which involves us developing and implementing care plans for the children most at risk in the community.
