YMCA Edinburgh works to transform the lives of individuals in Leith, Edinburgh and East Lothian through our programmes working with children, young people, adults and families.
YMCA Edinburgh runs a range of programmes supporting excluded and vulnerable individuals including:
pupils at risk of exclusion from school
young people at risk of offending
vulnerable adults with addictions
vulnerable adults with mental health issues
Through all our programmes we aim to transform lives through personal growth, development and renewal and enable people to make a positive contribution to their community.
YMCA Edinburgh aims to:
- We aim to transform lives by supporting individuals in their life aspirations, developing the skills and experience they need to engage fully in their community and wider society.
- We aim to give young people the chance to acheive their dreams. For vulnerable young people this means developing their self esteem, personal skills & resilience & exposing them to new opportunities.
- Many of the individuals we work with have been damaged by life experiences such as homelessness, family breakdown & addictions. Our aim is to increase their confidence, self worth & self-esteem.
- We aim to provide a welcoming, non-judgemental safe space to every individual who walks through our doors. This enables us to listen to the needs of individuals and respond to their needs.
