YouthTalk NE - Leith

The YouthTalk programme has taken place across different parts of Edinburgh where over 6000 young people have been involved and helped make a difference. 

In Leith, young people asked for:

Reduce access to alcohol for people under age

  • Working positively with North East Action on Alcohol to create workshops and other activities to get the message across that it’s not safe for young people. A Blue Light disco was planned but will need to take place later.

Increase safety in and around parks and green spaces

  • We are working with our parks people to look at what we might be able to do to improve things

Increase safety for young people on line

  • Looking to get parents more involved with helping get safer messages across to children. Also looking to provide access to other online resources to parents.

Increase sport and physical activity

  • Working to link with Hibernian FC Gamechanger and Edinburgh Leisure to improve access to activities.
