Friends of Citadel: making Leith lives better

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.

All of this costs money.

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.

How to Help


Every little helps, so please give whatever you can spare to help fund the good work that goes on at The Citadel.


If you’d like to hold an event or take part in some sponsored activity we’d be delighted if you chose to make The Citadel your named charity.


For as little as £5 a month you can become a Friend Of Citadel, giving vital support to the work we do and helping to secure our future.


If you can’t give money you’re always welcome to give your time. We’d love to hear from anybody who’d like to get involved.
