Grassmarket Community Project

Grassmarket Community Project is a social enterprise born from a century old partnership between Greyfriars Kirk and the Grassmarket Mission in Edinburgh. It has transformed from a humble soup kitchen into a vibrant and inclusive community hub. Providing a safe and nurturing space for disadvantaged and vulnerable people where they can attend workshops, meet others and build up their skills and confidence.

Grassmarket Community project provides shelter and structure for those who need it. It is a sanctuary, with many regular members for whom it "feels like home".
