WHO WE ARE

​MISSION AND HISTORY

Youth Action Project offers support, information and advice to young people aged 10-21 years. The organisation was launched in December 1992, originally a small locally based project in Livingston addressing territorial issues. During the last 25 years the organisation has expanded throughout the whole of West Lothian, we are now delivering services that meet the ever changing needs of our young people.

 

We operate a detached youth work service, peer education, diversion from crime and anti-social behaviour. A befriending service for vulnerable young people, targeted group work programmes, practicle training workshops, summer activities and a music project.

 

We will also assist parents/carers and communities that may be experiencing difficulties with young people.
