Canongate Youth

Canongate Youth works with children and young people aged 5-24 and our mission is to provide high quality youth work services that support children and young people to flourish. We offer a varied programme of opportunities such as 1-1 support, youth and children's clubs, holiday activities, outdoor play, employability support and group work.
We work with approximately 500 children and young people every year and have a staff team of 12, who are based in our city centre premises in Edinburgh.

Over the last 10 years we have worked hard to improve our digital presence and have done so to the best of our ability and with very limited time and budget. We would be keen to continue to develop this area of work and further improve our digital presence and the benefits that can come from it.
