South East Edinburgh

Between 2001 and 2008 EVOC worked in the Gilmerton/Gracemont/Inch areas out of an office by Gilmerton library.  We brought together the fifty or so local community groups in those neighbourhoods and really generated a community feel for the area – which had had little community development investment.  Great memories and lovely people in the south of the city….

Over the years we’ve been involved in a multitude of campaigns, protests and projects in response to the needs of Edinburgh’s citizens, but not without the collaboration and involvement of citizens and organisations across the City. We want to piece together a picture of the third sector in Edinburgh from the voices of the people that have been right at the heart of it. Do you remember marching for tenants rights? Fighting to save the public laundries? Were you involved with community transport, or improvements in mental health services? Do you volunteer or fundraise for a cause close to your heart? We’d love for you to share your story with us.
