The Edinburgh Youth Services programme works with young people across the capital who have complex needs. It provides education, training and employability support to help them gain confidence and move forward with their lives.

Caseworkers provide participants with one-to-one intensive support, motivation and encouragement. Participants are also helped to develop and implement a personal development action plan and group work programmes. This develops skills they need to progress into education, training or employment. Participants are signposted to specialist support services and given the assistance they need to attend appointments. They are provided with budgeting advice and help with finances.
