The Cornmarket Project is recognised for its comprehensive approach to tackling challenging social issues. We offer a diverse range of programmes and services to support individuals who are dealing with problems related to criminal behaviour and substance misuse.

Additionally, the Cornmarket Project also extends its support to the families of our clients.
Our Services and Programmes
At the Cornmarket Project, we recognise that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to supporting individuals in making positive behavioural changes. Each person has their own unique set of needs. Therefore, we meet our clients where they are in terms of their motivation to make positive changes. To accomplish this, we offer the following 13 distinct programmes and services:
Drop-in low threshold service.
Drugs rehab community employment schemes.
Methadone clinic support service,
Restorative justice service.
Online Cocaine and Crack Addiction Support service.
Homelessness day service.
Women’s substance misuse service.
Trauma informed care programme.
EPIC social enterprise.
Kafe Konnect social enterprise.
To effectively address substance misuse and concurrent criminality in our local communities, we must implement comprehensive and forward-thinking strategies while taking decisive actions. Extensive media coverage has made us all too aware of the severe societal impact of entrenched substance misuse, particularly in areas of deprivation and social exclusion throughout the country. It is crucial for us in Wexford to prevent a similar situation from occurring.
To bring about tangible improvements and create safer communities in County Wexford, we must acknowledge the strong connections between persistent substance misuse, ongoing criminal activities, and social exclusion. By adopting an integrated approach that addresses the entire life cycle of those affected, we can initiate real change and contribute to the goal of safer communities.
