Specsavers Liffey Valley recently visited a group of young adults from the local Youthreach school in Leixlip to provide eye tests and expert advice. The staff at Specsavers Liffey Valley thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them, conducting check-ups and providing them with eye health information. Speaking about their visit to Leixlip Youthreach, store director at Specsavers Liffey Valley, Patrick Dennehy, says: ‘We were delighted to have visited the group of young adults in our local Leixlip Youthreach school. We carried out eye tests for the students to ensure that any potential vision issues would not hold them back on their educational journey. The importance of a child’s vision is critical in the development of their education and the team at Specsavers Liffey Valley were more than happy to help. This is hopefully the start of a great partnership between Specsavers and Leixlip Youthreach.’

Youthreach is a Department of Education and Skills official education, training and work experience programme for early school leavers aged 15–20. It offers young people the opportunity to identify options within adult life and provides them with opportunities to acquire certification. The staff at Specsavers Liffey Valley are healthcare professionals that pride themselves on providing the best possible healthcare service for eye and ear health to customers.
