Street Outreach

streetoutreach

The Junction Street Outreach Team is out and about in the Leith area most Tuesdays from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, and most Fridays from 6.00pm to 7.00pm. They go out into the community to tell young people they meet about all the different services that are available at The Junction for 12-21 year olds, who live or go to school in the local area.

The Outreach Team also gives information about the monthly health topic and provide C:Card ‘grab bags’ for over 16s who want condoms but haven’t managed to get to a C:Card point to collect them.

If you see them out and about give them a shout and say hello!

Schools Outreach

schooloutreachOutreach in schools continues to grow and develop. We deliver and facilitate a high standard of group work sessions to S1-S6 and to work closely with the school guidance departments at Trinity Academy, Leith Academy and Drummond Community High School.

Our services are promoted through positive interactions with young people, with a focus on our topical health issue of the month which is often identified in response to our conversations with young people about health issues which are important to them. Topics include health and wellbeing, sexual health, alcohol and stress awareness.
