Ferrywell Youth Project grew out of years of SU Scotland work in the Pilton, Muirhouse and Drylaw areas of North Edinburgh. The work included (and still does!) SU groups in primary schools, a weekly youth club and summer camps. Ferrywell was launched in July 2014 to continue and expand this work as a separate charity, but still retains strong links with SU Scotland.
Over the last 5 years the work has grown and expanded. We now work in three local schools offering individual support, drop ins, lunchtime clubs, SU groups, targetted groupwork and counselling. Our weekly youth groups on a Thursday night have over 40 young people and we offer in depth support work to young people and families facing difficulties.
