YMCA Edinburgh is part of an inclusive global Christian movement, open to people of all faiths and none.
In Edinburgh, we offer programmes for children and young people including; playrangers, playschemes, holiday, after school and youth clubs.
We also provide 1-1 befriending mentoring for vulnerable children and young people.
Our Plusone and intandem 1-1 befriending/mentoring projects support up to 50 children and young people aged between 8-14, across Edinburgh, at any one time.
In order to deliver this service we recruit, train and carefully match adult volunteers with children and young people who have been referred to us by Social Work, schools and health. Regular ongoing support and training is provided to all our volunteers.
