Blaise McDonald

Youth Services Manager

My name is Blaise and my role at CAAS is Youth Services Manager. My background is in Family Support and Youth Work and I’m a trained Parenting Facilitator.

I’ve worked here for nearly 7 years now and absolutely love my job! You’ll usually find me in the Youth Office along with Karen and Ciaran or out and about in local schools or colleges meeting with staff, delivering training or supporting Young People.

I oversee all the Youth groups and courses here including Girls’ Group, Social Group, Film Group, Why Try and CALMS. Although I don’t often get the chance to deliver these groups myself they are run by members of the Youth Team.

I also oversee our fantastic Living With ADHD and Autism Course. We are fortunate enough to have a great group of facilitators to deliver this course in the centre and online.

As the Manager of the Youth Services please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions about our various projects or would like to refer your family into our team for personalised support.

As I’ve got two very bubbly and energetic daughters keeping me on my toes outside of the office I work term time only, but there’s always a member of the team who can help during the holidays.
