About Us

About Youth is a community-based, non-profit Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SC046776) based in the Calders, Wester Hailes in South West Edinburgh. 

Active since 2016, About Youth exists to improve the lives of young people living in our community by delivering a range of exciting, engaging and innovative youth work opportunities including open-access youth groups, group-work programmes, outreach initiatives and one-to-one support.

We provide young people with advice, information and support that helps them to develop as individuals, connect with their communities and access opportunities that encourage them to be active, creative and learn new skills; raising young peoples’ aspirations and increasing their confidence. 

Our activity has been recognised and celebrated in a number of articles and case studies. In 2018, we were filmed speaking about our work and its positive impact helping young people overcome challenges for a national television episode about Adverse Childhood Experiences as part of the STV Children’s Appeal.
