YouthTalk NW - Queensferry & Kirkliston

We held a YouthTalk Event in Queensferry and Kirkliston in September 2018, and below you can see the things that Young People felt that they needed most:

A DEDICATED LGBT CLUB:

This has been in place for over a year with around 18 young people regularly involved. We are working with our partners LGBT Youth Scotland to make this a success.

IMPROVED ACCESS TO SPORT AND ACTIVITY:

Created SparksFest as part of Summer 2019 programme. Lots of different sports and activities across Queensferry and Kirkliston. Hoping to repeat something and can ask young people what they would like to see in the programme.

IMPROVED SUPPORT AROUND MENTAL HEALTH, ESPECIALLY AROUND EXAM TIME:

A focus group involving young people at Queensferry High was created and following that, 1 to 1 sessions were held with 19 young people before the exams in 2019. It was hoped to re-run this but, you know where we are right now.

Below you can see a pictorial representation of what young people like and dislike in this area. This map was created in partnership with local artist, Martin Ayres - you can find his website here
