You Can

We’re so happy to be back delivering this programme again. Like everyone, we’ve had to adapt for COVID-19.  Things might be a little different and not all our activities will be starting immediately but our friendly team of instructors are here to welcome you back and help you stay active with us in a safe, but most of all enjoyable way.  For now, we can support participants in a range of ways, including digital one-to-ones, one-to-one supported gym sessions, in-venue classes and outdoor sessions.

Our team are contacting participants to let them know about this support. You can also get in touch with us by emailing active@edinburghleisure.co.uk or calling 0131 458 2260. 

YouCan aims to improve the physical, mental and emotional health of care experienced young people by empowering them to lead more active, healthier lives and develop new life skills. YouCan will enable the least physically active care experienced young people aged 14-26, to become and stay active.

This includes those who are:  

  • Kinship care 
  • Foster care 
  • Residential care  
  • Secure care  
  • Looked after at home or under a supervision order 
  • Care leavers 

An Active Communities physical activity instructor will work with young people referred to the project to identify a 12 week programme of physical activity that suits their needs.
