About Us

Derry Youth & Community Workshop is one of the most successful training organisations in Northern Ireland.

At DYCW we believe that development isn’t restricted to training as we create a culture and environment that helps our students grow in their own ability, skills, confidence, tolerance, commitment, initiative, understanding, self-control, motivation and much more.
