Our primary vision is to provide a place of belonging, support and encouragement for anyone who comes through our doors, through the numerous clubs and services tailored to a varied group of young people and adults.

Additional Youth Services
We are more than just another youth and community centre. We are a place that wants to help everyone grow and become who they are meant to be!
If you are struggling with anything, we want to come along-side you and support you in whatever capacity! Below are some of the ways that we can help do that!
For any young people who are struggling and would appreciate meeting one of our leaders over coffee, we are available to meet with you. Whether there's specific difficulties you are facing or you would just appreciate some one to talk to, we are here for you!
Please let us know if this is something that would be benefit you or your young person as this is available for all S1-S6 pupils.
The Shed already engages with many young people who come through our doors, but we didn't want to limit our engagement to those who were attending our facility. We work with local Primary schools to assist with their ongoing transition into Secondary, as well as supporting any individual difficulties they may be experiencing. We also work the Nicolson Institute to be available at set times in the week for any pupils to meet with one of our staff, as well as having individual support available if necessary.
Please contact us directly or the school staff for more information, or if your young person would benefit from.
