Youth event to forge links

YOUNG people in Edinburgh are to be offered free advice on housing, health and employment at an upcoming event.

The Get Connected event will take place next Thursday at St Andrew’s and St George’s West Church on Shandwick Place.

Experts will be on hand, with prizes available at some events. It has been organised by Link Living’s Edinburgh Young Person’s Service.

Support worker Claire Gardiner said: “We are pleased to get so many organisations from across Edinburgh together and some special guests, too.”
