YouthTalk Local SE - Liberton & Gilmerton

Young people asked for:

Make sure young people can influence service delivery

Establishing a YouthTalk reference group or a young people’s forum to help ensure changes take place to services with young people involved at every step.

Help tackle mental health and wellbeing issues

Linking with the Health Opportunities Team and others to put in place appropriate activity and support where possible. This has included developing 2 dedicated girls groups and an LGBT group.

Tackle poverty amongst young people

A pre-employability group has been set up at Liberton High School to help put in place activities and programmes that will help to support young people into employment or training or further education.

Young people can access a wider range of activities

All of the local youth providers through the SEEYA alliance will continue to develop new activities aimed at encouraging more participation.
