Positive Realities

Positive Realities aims to improve the health and wellbeing of young people and young adults aged 12-25 years and their families living in Lothian.


They work to improve life outcomes and aim to increase resilience and confidence of young people/adults and parents/carers as they move into adulthood. They do this by offering one-to-one and group based emotional support, coaching, and advocacy. The people they support may have low confidence, social isolation, low or anxious mood, family or relationship problems, money issues or irregular attendance at school, university or work.

Services include:

Life Coaching – six to eight (or longer if needed) one to one coaching sessions to help young people and young adults develop emotional resilience and support them to set and achieve their goals.

Advocacy – have someone that will help to say what you think in meetings or with professionals.

Information – can help you get more informed about the law, your rights, career choices and services

Social group for isolated young people – meeting other young people in similar situations can help you realise that you are not alone.

Positive Realities also run one off learning sessions and workshops, covering topics like goal setting, confidence, relationships, and understanding emotions.
