Normal service details...

Individual Support...

Young people sometimes need one-to-one assistance to address the issues affecting their lives. The Youth Agency offers young people space to meet with a youth worker and expore these issues in a safe and secure environment. Youth Workers do not tell young people what to do, but rather support them to decide on the best way forward for them. Individual support is offered to any young person that requires additional help in managing the issues in their life. This provision ensures that young people are assisted to find the pathways to care most appropriate to their situation.

C: Card Scheme...

C: Card is a free and confidential service which provides 13-25 year olds in Edinburgh and the Lothians with support, advice and free condoms. Workers have the opportunity to support young people using this service make positive lifestyle choices regarding their sexual health.

Lunchtime Health Drop-in...

When working with young people, issues relating to sexual health, relationships and emotional wellbeing can arise at any point. The Youth Agency believes it is essential that young people have access to confidential advice, support and information.

The purpose of the Lunchtime Health Drop In is to provide young people with the opportunity to speak to staff in confidence about any issues that may have arisen. Staff can also support young people to access additional provision is required.

The drop-in is supported by Healthy Respect, City of Edinburgh Council and C:Card.

Sexual Health Drop-in...
