Friends Of Citadel

The Citadel has been a safe and supportive place for young people in Leith since 1980. We lay on youth clubs, trips and life lessons for anybody in Leith from six years old up to 21. We work with families, young mums, volunteers and older people. We also offer one-to-one support for kids who need a little extra help.


The Citadel can only operate with funding and donations. The economic climate means it’s hard to get the same funding as we did in the past. To make up the shortfall, we rely on the generosity of people like yourself. If you support our work, we’d really like you to consider becoming a Friend of Citadel.
