DROP - INS

​LIFE SKILLS

TUITION

SUPPORT

ADVICE

Drop-Ins have been developed over the years following extensive consultations with young people and community representatives who identified the need for informal and standard youth provision in targeted areas of West Lothian. Many of these have been funded in partnership with West Lothian Council through the Tackling Underage Drinking Strategy. These service's provide young people a safe and supported setting in which they can meet friends, socialise, gain access to information, join youth committees and be supported to become involved in community activity such as gala days, community councils and local events. Activities such as sports, arts and crafts, and music sessions can also be accessed through these facilities.
