Thank you so much to Joanna Cherry, MP for the following kind words and vote of confidence in our work…..
WHYA is testament to the importance that youth work can play on the lives of our young people. Since being elected as the Member of Parliament for Edinburgh South West, I have visited the youth agency on a couple of occasions and have been struck by the dedication of their staff and volunteers; and their passion for making a difference.
In providing a varied programme, workshops and group sessions that target the issues our young people are faced with, the youth agency have been successful in developing a strong rapport with the local community.
The importance of youth work in our communities is immense. Organisations such as the Wester Hailes Youth Agency play a vital role in encouraging our children and young people; improving their self esteem, providing guidance and support and equipping them with the skills required to succeed.
#TeamEdinSouthWest are continually amazed by the number of individuals who put so much back into their communities. From the Resilience Programme to their Streetwork sessions to their invaluable individual work, the Youth Agency in Wester Hailes should be celebrated for their dedication, enthusiasm and the lasting impact they are creating within the lives of our young people.
Thanks for having us!”
