Our Story

Change-makers. Committed to building a society that develops and strengthens capacity, promotes citizenship, better values diversity and increases mutual appreciation across all people. We are Springboard.

Springboard’s journey

We are proud of our 30+ year history. Throughout the challenges of the last three decades, we have remained steadfast to supporting young people and communities year on year.

Where we started

Established in 1992 and based in the early days on the Shankill and Falls in Belfast and Tallaght in Dublin, the focus of Springboard has been on helping people maximise their positive choices.

Creating safe spaces, delivering needs-led learning, and building meaningful relationships have all been cornerstones to our approach.

We are proud to have worked with over 14000+ individuals, offering innovative learning and transformative opportunities on a local and international level. Every individual left their imprint on the organisation and been a valued member of the Springboard ‘family’.

It is through our participants, and our partners as well as the communities in which we work, that Springboard has been able to achieve so much and to build a legacy of empowerment and community cohesion that has made a difference to so many.
