Young People Health & Wellbeing 12-21



Our health and wellbeing Drop-In runs on Wednesdays from 4pm to 7pm.  You can have a one-to-one chat with a worker, access c:card and pregnancy testing or get a relaxing massage.

Please be aware that because of 1-metre distancing, we need to manage how many people are in the space.  We also ask you to do a lateral flow test before you come in, wear a mask (unless exempt) and sanitize your hands.  Keep an eye on our social media for updates!


Digital Drop-In 

You can use our Digital Drop-In to have a free, confidential, one-to-one chat with a worker.  All our workers are really friendly and will treat you with respect.  One-to-one chats last about 30 minutes and you can talk about whatever is on your mind. 

The worker can:

  • listen to you 
  • look at what might help
  • help you find any information you might need

The Digital Drop-In runs on Mondays and Thursdays from 4pm to 7pm.  This is support by phone, video call, Whatsapp, text or email for young people in Edinburgh aged 12-21.

To request support, you can email or text 07758348850. Please contact us before the Digital Drop-In starts so we can confirm a time.

The Junction Services

What is The Junction?

The Junction is a safe, friendly, confidential centre which offers lots of health-related services, education and support for young people in Leith and North East Edinburgh aged 12-21.

We think it’s important to listen to young people and find out what they think and want. That’s why young people have been consulted from the start of the Junction and continue to be so today.

Here at the Junction, we are working to promote long-term prevention of health problems, to raise young people’s awareness and self-esteem and to enable them to make informed choices about their health and well-being. The aim is to help them help themselves which if successful will ultimately have a positive effect on the community as a whole.
