The Citadel has provided community-based youth work in Leith since 1980. We are an experienced voluntary organisation with strong links to local people and local partners.

The Citadel Youth Centre offers local children & young people aged 6 - 21yrs opportunities for fun, meeting friends and trying new things, and we have experienced youth workers there for help and support.

The Citadel helps young people to have their say and make Leith a good place to grow up.

Our flexible, community-based approach provides all kinds of young people with learning, leisure, friendship and access to adults who care and who can do something to help whenever it is needed.

Our open-access youth clubs, projects and individual support are all designed to meet the needs of the young people in our area as they see them - we keep in touch with parents, schools and other services to understand their needs too.

Most young people come to the Citadel because they know it is a good place to be. Some young people come to the Citadel because their school or other support service has reffered them for more help.

We have a team of full-time staff, sessional workers and volunteers. Our staff team is skilled in:

- Group work.
- Individual support and coaching.
- Health and wellbeing.
- Girls' work.
- Intergenerational work.
- Employability support.
- Youth participation.
- Arts, drama, games, music....... you name it, it can happen at the Citadel.
