Project Description

The Grassmarket Community Project is a new facility in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, offering support, encouragement and meaningful opportunities for local people in an inclusive and engaging environment.  It offers a range of social activities, educational classes and social enterprises to enable people to progress towards healthier and more sustainable futures.

The Project developed from a long-standing partnership of the Greyfriars Tolbooth and Highland Kirk and the Grassmarket Mission.  As well as providing excellent services for its staff and members it also offers a first-class conference and meeting room venue for organisations across Edinburgh.
