Drop-ins

We run health drop-ins every week, for young people aged 12 – 25 years old. They are usually based at Portobello, Gilmerton, and Craigmillar.

We create safe spaces for young people to gain information and advice about all aspects of their well-being.

*HOT is working towards opening our drop-ins again and will update this space as soon as possible. In the meantime you can join our webchat using the chat box below at the times our drop-ins would usually run’
