The EADP Community Development Innovation Fund is to encourage creative and innovative ideas to reduce the social isolation experienced by those who use alcohol and drugs. Application deadline is 30th April 2020, see prospectus for more details.
Join Edinburgh’s Compact Partnership as we discuss what makes a ‘Good Place to Live’ and what Edinburgh needs to achieve this.
The Partnership works towards Edinburgh’s Community Plan which has three priorities for the City:
- enough money to live on
- access to work, learning and training
- a good place to live.
We are hosting an event on 30th January looking at one of these priorities in more depth: A Good Place to Live.
We have invited several community groups and voluntary organisations to deliver short presentations on what ‘A Good Place to Live’ means to them in the context of Edinburgh.
We wish to invite anyone who works in the arts, communities, social care, health or social justice to come along, hear from others and share their own views on what ‘A Good Place to Live’ looks like for Edinburgh.
To sign up for the event and more details please visit the eventbrite here.

a shared strategy for the Edinburgh Social Enterprise ecosystem.
The 4th Social Enterprise Strategy for Edinburgh is developed in partnership with social enterprises, public, private, education and third sectors. The Social Enterprise Strategy Implementation Group (SESIG) has been working for the past year on developing the strategy, which aims to be inclusive and supportive of a wide range of organisations within the wider social economy, with a focus towards those who aspire to achieve SE code compliance.
Building on previous strategies, the key objectives are to continue to grow the social enterprise community; increase the sustainability of organisations and the community; and evidence how this community adds value and makes a difference to social and economic outcomes in the city. This will be achieved through working with the wide range of stakeholders who make up the social enterprise in Edinburgh.
