The Young Saheliya Service provides support for young BME women and girls from the age of 12-25 years. Here at Saheliya we understand that it may be difficult for you to meet friends, have barriers to make the choices that you want, have a free, safe, private and confidential space to chat to some-one about things that may be bothering you…
Every Friday you can come to Saheliya anytime between 1pm-4pm. A space to speak to staff and get advice about your health, education, career choices, meet new people, join in with activities and discussions or simply relax and chill.
You may feel that you need extra support finding a job, developing your confidence or motivation, want to find out more about Edinburgh, Scotland and UK if you are maybe new to the country. These are just a few examples. Your support worker will initially ask you to come to Saheliya, discuss, explore and develop a plan of what You would like support with, styling it to Your needs. You and your support worker will then work together to achieve these intended goals.
The Young Saheliya counselor will further support you and provide a safe space to talk about any problems that you may be facing in your life. Our counselor is qualified to listen, help make sense of stuff in your life and not judge anything that you share and explore ways of coping with any difficulties.
All of our Services are Free, Friendly and Confidential. We will only share information with others if you ask us to or if we feel that we are concerned about your safety.
