At U-evolve we support young people aged 11-18 in North Edinburgh to build confidence, resilience and self belief. We work in some of the lowest SIMD (Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation 2020) areas in Edinburgh and the young people we work with often experience socio-economic deprivation. Many are disengaged from education, experiencing mental health problems and relationship breakdowns. We believe all young people deserve happy and fulfilling futures, no matter where they are starting from.
We provide 1:1 therapeutic coaching with young people, supporting them to reach their goals and work through the trauma they've experienced. We also run topic- based workshops and group work, such as mental health awareness, transition workshops and body image for young people.
We also work with the adults in young people’s networks, ensuring that they can effectively and compassionately support young people through the challenges they may be facing. We want to build resilience and emotional literacy to create a culture that fosters good mental health and wellbeing for all. We work in partnerships with schools and youth groups. We provide training, workshops and opportunities for peer support to parents, carers and frontline professionals.
This support has never been more needed, and we have seen a significant demand in our services as a result of the emotional pressures of Covid-19.

The fundraiser will report directly to the CEO.
