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. The Drop In is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 6-10pm. 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 Scottish Children's Lottery 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
