No One Left Behind Activity Agreements Hub - North West/ North East

The Activity Agreement Hub works with young people aged 16-19 at Stage 1 of the employability pipeline and operates in the North East and North West localities. 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.
