Wester Hailes Youth Agency receives £10,000

The Scottish Children’s Lottery’s main aim is to raise money to help children in Scotland, and each time you play, you are supporting charities and good causes out in the local communities doing just that.

The Wester Hailes Youth Agency, who work with young people aged 8-25 in Wester Hailes and the surrounding communities in South West Edinburgh, are just one of the many good causes making a difference.

With your help, we’ve provided funding of £10,000 which will support their Drop In provision for young people aged 8-18, giving them the chance to have fun, a break from their problems and access to support as they need it.

Fundraising Officer, Clare, describes the Drop In as “a safe and secure environment where young people can develop relationships with peers and staff, enjoy their free time and feel part of their community.

During the COVID crisis we have delivered digital sessions which included a digital summer programme: a night at the movies, a wellbeing session, craft sessions, chocolate pizzas and a games night. We delivered all resources needed for sessions to the young people taking part.”

That sounds like something we’d want to get involved in!

The Youth Agency have enjoyed welcoming young people back to their youth centre and seeing each other in person again, with Fundraising Officer, Clare, emphasising how “relationships with young people are at the centre of our work”. 

Both the Scottish Children’s Lottery and The Wester Hailes Youth Agency are grateful for your continued support which makes this all possible, so on behalf of the Scottish Children’s Lottery and the charities involved – thank you.
