“As North East Locality Youth Work Development Worker, I do a few different things.
I’ve been working across the North East of Edinburgh to promote the good youth work can do. This has involved both working with professionals and young people.
Building the work force capacity and knowledge has been a large part of my job. There is now a North East Locality training programme, which anyone working with young people from the North East of Edinburgh are eligible to attend the training days. This is followed up by access to information through myself about current youth services.
There is also a new North East Edinburgh Youth Ambassadors group. This is a brand new group for young people all over the North East. They are coming together, to help promote youth work, hear from other young people in the locality and put on a big event towards the end of year of the Young People celebrating all the good young people do.
Follow our Facebook and NEE on twitter for regular updates on what’s happening.”
