Pilton Youth and Children’s Project (PYCP) is a registered charity based in Pilton in the North West locality of Edinburgh. PYCP has been established for over 22 years and is based in an area of multiple deprivation where many children, young people and their families face inequalities in areas such as income, health and education. We work with young people aged 5 to 18 where they can access a range of activities to best suit their needs.

PYCP has provided 1:1 and group-based support to young people since we were founded in 1997. We have a small team of Intensive Support workers, taking referrals from families, schools and other local agencies.

The Intensive Support worker(s) will work with identified young people on both a 1:1 and group basis. The aim will be to support them to overcome difficulties, develop resilience and coping skills so that they can be successful in their learning and development.

The Intensive Support worker will also contribute to the development of the service, for example being a point of contact for referrals and organising programmes alongside their colleagues.
