Positive Transitions: Support for children, young people and families
This service offers one-to-one and group support for children, young people and families that focuses on enhancing transitions, developing stronger relationships at schools, and increasing self-esteem and confidence.
Our dedicated Befriending Coordinators work closely with schools, families and other organisations throughout all phases of the project, and thanks to the dedication of our team, we have been awarded the Quality in Befriending Award for our excellence in this work.
Reconnect: Support for adults and families
Reconnect is a service offering support to adults and families in Edinburgh and East Lothian to help them to improve wellbeing by increasing digital and social inclusion.
We believe that digital inclusion and social inclusion are inextricably linked, and together can contribute to enhanced wellbeing.
We address wellbeing through digital in a three stage approach: getting the device, getting the support and getting connectivity.
The support we provide can be weekly, fortnightly, monthly or ad-hoc, usually between 8am-6pm Monday to Friday.
We can help with learning to use a digital device, connecting to the internet, navigating the web, connecting with the community, family and friends, learning skills to manage finances, reducing costs (energy providers, data plans, shopping, etc.), finding opportunities for education and employment and feeling less isolated and having someone to talk to.
