Charity description

Wester Hailes Youth Agency logo
The Wester Hailes Youth Agency works with young people aged 8-25 within Wester Hailes and the surrounding communities of Broomhouse, Sighthill, Parkhead and Longstone.

One young person commented: "The Drop in is a great part of the community. It welcomes people from all backgrounds. They are outstanding when it comes to support. They have made me a more confident and happier person."


The Youth Agency aims to relieve poverty and disadvantage, advance learning and to promote active participation and citizenship amongst young people living in areas of deprivation. We believe that the needs, abilities, and aspirations of young people should be recognised, understood and met within a supportive environment, which encourages them to achieve their goals and make real and measurable progress.

Each year we work with over 1,260 young people. In order to achieve our aims we provide the following services: Drop in Provision, Detached Youth Work, Environmental Work, Schools Work, Group Work and Individual Support.

We build up relationships with young people over a period of time; giving them consistent support during different stages in their lives and access to integrated services in their community.

Comments from young people include; “I feel I can be myself and no-one judges me and it makes me feel comfortable and safe.”; “I feel comfortable and safe.”; “It’s fun and safe.”; “I can be silly, daft, happy, sad, whatever I want to be, ‘cause I won’t be judged.”
