About Us

The Citadel has provided community-based youth work in Leith since 1980. We are an experienced voluntary organisation with strong links to local people and local partners. Our flexible, community-based approach provides all kinds of young people with learning, leisure, friendship and access to adults who care and who can do something to help whenever it is needed. Our open access youth clubs, projects and individual support are all designed to meet the needs of the young people in our area as they see them – we work closely with parents, schools and other services to understand their needs too.

If you’d like to find out more about us please have a look through this website or give us a call on 0131 554 0510.



I’ve been going there for a couple of years and they’ve helped me a lot, if it wasn’t for them then I wouldn’t get most of the opportunities I get now. It’s helped me a lot, it’s helped me to produce myself into a better man and have some hope for myself in life, realise my own potential and hopefully to take it to the next level

it has helped me a lot and I am now more confident and prepared to get a job’
