WELCOME TO OBERSTOWN
Oberstown Children Detention Campus (Oberstown) provides a safe and secure environment for young people sentenced or remanded by the Courts.
We provide care, education, training and other programmes for young people under 18 years of age, with the aim of reintegrating them back into the community, capable of making a positive and productive contribution to society. Two educational centres on the campus cater for all the young people who are detained here.
Staff in the Oberstown campus look forward to working with the families of the young people currently in our care. The information below should help you get the most from your visits to us.
