Youth Agency Coronavirus Support

Wester Hailes Youth Agency has announced they will be offering a variety of services to Wester Hailes’ Young People throughout the Coronavirus lockdown, including one-to-one support, digital drop-ins and comfort packs.

One to One support – we are in contact with the majority of young people who were previously receiving one to one support. We have also opened up this service to any young person we were working with prior to all this happening. They just need to get in contact with us either via social media or email. ( see details below)

Digital drop-ins – we are running weekly drop-ins for all three of our drop-in age groups – Juniors -aged 8 -p6, Intermediates – p7 – S2, Seniors S3+. Clubs are being run via Zoom and are focusing on a mixture of easy fun activities, general chat and chance to share experiences, checking in to see how individuals are and the opportunity to access further support if required. I have attached the poster with Zoom details on.

Comfort packs – From Wednesday 15th April we will be distributing “comfort packs”. These will contain shampoo, conditioner, tooth brushes, toothpaste, sanitary products and deodorant. They can be collected from the Youth Agency office on Dumbryden Drive (in line with social distancing) or delivered to anyone who is self-isolating. Collection will be in between 12-3pm or contact us directly.

We can be contacted by:
