Welcome to our new website; we hope you will find what you are looking for here.  To access more visit the menus to the left…

The Elgin Youth Development Group was established in 1998 with the vision of providing a safe haven, a social space and personal development opportunities for young people from all social, economic, cultural and ethnic backgrounds in the local area.

inkwell @eycOver the last seventeen years, we have grown, and we now operate the Elgin Youth Cafe and a community project called The Inkwell.  In addition in early 2016 we opened a new community kitchen to provide cooking workshops to the community and young people.

Elgin Youth Cafe

The name is a bit of a give-away, but the venue is a hub from which project based youthwork engages with many of the young people of the area.

The Inkwell

This social enterprise provides venue hire and catering for many of the local organisations and groups at a competitive rate. In addition the new community kitchen is a venue for hire that groups can use to do their own catering workshops.  We also run workshops and training from the community kitchen.
