Youth & Children's Work

Making an Impact

CY provides a safe and welcoming space for children and young people who live in our local area. Our weekly programme of clubs and activities are child and young person led and encourage them to have fun, overcome barriers and try new things. Our clubs welcome a variety of children and young people who might have lots of different barriers and challenges in their lives. The clubs focus on fun activities that help build skills, confidence and peer relationships.

Children and young people are supported to be active members of the clubs and have a big say in what activities they can do. Our clubs are open to anyone in the local area and operate on a drop-in basis so there is no need for previous sign up/registration.

For more information contact Andy Porteous on andrew@canongateyouth.org.uk or 0131 556 9389

What do we have on?

We provide youth clubs for our various age groups across the week. At present, these are running slightly differently as we are restricted to certain numbers in all of our rooms. Please do contact us if you’d like more information about any of our clubs.
