No One Left Behind Activity Agreements Hub - North West

No One Left Behind (NOLB) Activity Agreements support young people aged 15.5-19 (or up to age 26 for those with multiple barriers as stated in the NOLB Emerging Best Practice Guide) who are not in education, employment, or training.

The Community Renewal Activity Agreement Hub works with young people aged 15.5-19 (26 with additional barriers) at Stage 1 of the employability pipeline. We are based in the North West locality, however we cover NE and NW in conjunction with Citadel Youth. When a referral is made to the activity agreement team the referral will be passed on to ourselves or Citadel depending upon the area the young person resides or is most comfortable with. Referrals are made through activityagreements@edinburgh.gov.uk. Young people can also self-refer through to the hub.

Young people are offered 1-1 support and take part in a minimum of 4 hours of activity designed to help them build confidence and take steps towards their chosen goals. This activity may include attending a weekly employability drop in, volunteering in the community or taking part in local programmes or projects.

Young people are usually supported on an activity agreement between 3 months and a year.

If eligible, young people can apply for Education Maintenance Allowance of £30 a week.
