GYC

Engaging
young people

Welcome to GYC Website

Developed in consultation with young people in the area, Granton Youth Centre is a supportive youth space for young people from North Edinburgh aged 11 - 27 years old.

Through a combination of youth work, detached youth work, informal learning, counselling and volunteering, the Centre works to support young people by providing a safe environment for them both at our base at Royston Wardieburn Community Centre and through detached engagement in the local area.
