We recently appointed Ben, who has worked with us the last year and a half, as our new Streetwork Team Leader. Streetwork is detached youth work, on the street, to meet and talk to young people using a harm reduction approach to minimise risk-taking behaviour. By getting to know young people on their own terms and in the spaces they choose to hang around in, we hope to build relationships with them!

Look out for Ben and the team in their Red GY Jumpers. The team goes out 3-4 times a week, usual times between 6-9pm or 5-8pm in Granton, Royston, Pilton, Muirhouse and Drylaw.

Please now email ben@grantonyouth.com for any information regarding this service.

He looks like this!

(But usually a bit cheerier)
