What is The Junction?
The Junction is a safe, friendly, confidential centre which offers lots of health-related services, education and support for young people in Leith and North East Edinburgh aged 12-21.
We think it’s important to listen to young people and find out what they think and want. That’s why young people have been consulted from the start of the Junction and continue to be so today.
Here at the Junction, we are working to promote long-term prevention of health problems, to raise young people’s awareness and self-esteem and to enable them to make informed choices about their health and well-being. The aim is to help them help themselves which if successful will ultimately have a positive effect on the community as a whole.
