Young Saheliya

The Young Saheliya Service provides support for young BME women and girls from the age of 12-25 years.  Here at Saheliya we understand that it may be difficult for you to meet friends, have barriers to make the choices that you want, have a free, safe,  private and confidential space to chat to some-one about things that may be bothering you…

1-1 Support

You may feel that you need extra support finding a job, developing your confidence or motivation, want to find out more about Edinburgh/Glasgow, Scotland and UK if you are maybe new to the country. These are just a few examples.  Your support worker will initially ask you to come to Saheliya,  discuss, explore and develop a plan of what You would like support with, styling it to Your needs. You and your support worker will then work together to achieve these intended goals.
