Since 1977 we have successfully provided support, recreation and training opportunities for 5-25 year-olds to help them overcome barriers and secure a great future. The youth work team works in the Old Town, Holyrood and Southside areas of the city, and the employability and training team works with young people from Edinburgh and the Lothians.
The project is an independent voluntary organisation with charitable status (Scottish Charity no. SC000600) and is managed by a management committee made up of people with a specific interest in the development of young people, local people, together with representatives from a range of local organisations and agencies. These include schools (primary and secondary), police, local politicians from the four main political parties Children & Families Department, representatives from a number of community organisations, parents, volunteers and others interested in the wellbeing of young people.
