Changes to our Drop In provision during Covid - We are delighted to be back in our building in the Vennel in the city centre. However due to restrictions we have had to make some changes:
Monday & Wednesdays evenings 6-10pm are now for 16 - 21 year olds
Friday evenings 6-9pm are now for under 18s
There is no requirement to book in advance but details will be taken each night for Track and Protect purposes.
All our activities including summer provision are free - A hot meal at all our drop in sessions is provided free of charge to those who wish. This is made possible by the support of Cash for Kids. Until free concessionary travel for all under 22's starts we can also provide travel costs to and from our sessions if needed.
At the heart of all the 6VT services is the Drop In. Operating an open door policy, the Drop In is open to any young person living in the Edinburgh aged 12-21 years of age. Each month there is a programme of social, educational and personal development activities which young people can participate in if they wish.
At the Drop In, young people can access free internet and there is a coffee bar where thanks to Radio Forth Cash for Kids all young people attending can receive a free hot nutritional meal. Other snacks and drinks can be purchased too.
At the Drop In, food vouchers can be redeemed by young people who have been issued them by other agencies such as the council housing dept who have bought into the scheme. If you are interested in becoming a partner in the Food Voucher Scheme please get in touch.
We are also a C Card + outlet and for those who experience hygiene poverty, free toiletries and hygiene products can be accessed free of charge at any of our Drop In through our Health and Hygiene project. We are also a Period Friendly Point.
There are no membership or subscription fees at 6VT Youth Cafe. 6VT is a drug and alcohol free environment
