Niddrie Community Youth Group is a youth provision for children and young people who live in Greater Craigmillar. All the participants in the youth groups, live in Craigmillar as do the members of the management committee. The volunteers are made up of local people and parents as well as students on placement. The youth group members come from low income families and families with health concerns.
Our main activities are to provide recreational activities and facilities for children and young people living in Niddrie and Craigmillar, who have limited access to existing facilities due to poverty and lack of self confidence with the aim of improving their life chances and opportunities.
