WHO WE ARE

The Junction is an award winning young person’s health service for 12-21 year olds primarily in North East Edinburgh. We also support the development of health related work with young people throughout Edinburgh.

We offer access to a wide range of services, promoting health and wellbeing and providing young people with the skills to cope, enjoy life and reach their potential. We achieve this through education, information, and by providing a safe and welcoming environment with caring staff and volunteers who specialise in youth health.

People volunteer for different reasons but this can be an opportunity to have a new challenge, meet new people and develop your skills. We look forward to hearing from you and invite expressions of interest, in the first instance, by email info@the-junction.org or by phone, 0131 553 0570.
