Following guidance from the Government and the NHS regarding COVID-19 we have temporarily suspended all our drop ins and groupwork. We will continue to monitor the situation with a view to reopening as soon as it is safe and responsible to do so.
In the meantime we have been working to put in place ways the Youth Agency can continue to support young people. Our 1-1 work support service is continuing using a combination of messaging, telephone and video calls. We have been in touch with young people already receiving support but if you are a young person who would like someone to talk to please get in touch. Drop ins are continuing and will be run virtually for each age group and we are also continuing our groupwork programme, including our nurture groups, using video calling.
We have comfort packs available for young people and families who need essential hygiene items and are working with Edinburgh Community Food to distribute food packs. For this service, please send a private message and we will arrange to get these to you.
For information on any of our services or if you are a young person who requires support please contact us on:
