‘My Streets’ enables individuals who have experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides of 'their' town through the provision of necessary training and support. The unique tours provide a mixture of local history and personal insight from a guide who has experienced the streets of their town first hand, making for an informative and entertaining experience suitable for all interests and ages.
The programme offers benefits to all involved; the tour guides who receives professional training, support and earning potential, the local town which has its underappreciated gems revealed and the tourists who receive an informative, insightful tour.
The project has been running successfully in Drogheda since 2014.
Tours are offered 7 days a week and can be booked by private messaging on the My Streets facebook page, by emailing or by phone.
Tours are charged at a price of €5 per head.
