Based in the heart of the Grassmarket in Edinburgh, the Grassmarket Community Project is a partnership between the Grassmarket Mission and Greyfriars Kirk, and its mission is to support people through transitions in their lives and helping disengaged people re-connect with themselves, others and the wider community.
The social enterprise offers a mixture of education programs, social enterprise and social integration activities. Currently these are delivered through cookery, gardening, woodwork, art, music and textiles programs. Free meals are served to participants in the project and a drop-in meal service runs on a Monday evening. Though founded on work with those traditionally labelled ‘homeless,’ this project has been extended to all adults who face ‘social exclusion’ and have been marginalised by lack of opportunity, skills and aspiration.
