Welcome To Treo Port Lairge

At Treo we work with people from 16 years of age. Our main aim is to encourage and support each person make more positive choices, reduce their criminal activity, and move forward with their lives. This makes Waterford a safer and healthier community in which to live.

Our Work

We believe that each person is their own expert and it is their responsibility to bring about change in their lives. Our job is to provide support and guidance using a blend of different approaches


Each person is met from where they are at. Those who chose are brought through our referral procedure which aims to develop a good working relationship, meet initial & immediate needs, but also to develop a plan of action to bring about positive outcomes.
