Sunflower Garden (CrossReach)

Availability : Edinburgh Wide

Who is this for?

  • Children and young people aged 5 to 18 based in Edinburgh and Lothians who are affected by drug and/or alcohol use within their family.


The multi-disciplinary team consist of professional paid staff and volunteers, with backgrounds in social work, education, health and counselling. At Sunflower Garden, children and young people benefit from having a safe and confidential space where they can explore their emotions, thoughts and feelings whilst developing positive coping strategies. All of the work is aimed to support a child holistically in the best way possible.

The team understand that the support provided needs to be specific to the individual needs of each child/young person and so we offer a range of tailored therapeutic support, both in our building and on an outreach basis such as:

  • Counselling (including art and play therapy)
  • 1-to-1 therapeutic support
