Scottish Documentary Institute

SDI is an internationally recognised documentary research centre set up in 2004 at Edinburgh College of Art, specialised in documentary training, production and distribution. Our aim is to stimulate and inspire the documentary scene in Scotland and beyond and bridge the gap between academia and industry.

Our films have played at film festivals and have picked up major awards and nominations. In 2007 we set up SDI Productions Ltd, in order to develop a slate of feature documentaries.

Highland Environmental Network

Highland Environmental Network (HEN) works to coordinate and enable the sharing of information, expertise, education and action on the environment and sustainability in the Highlands of Scotland.

We do this by
– promoting environmental education, in its widest sense, in all sectors of the community within the Highlands
– sharing environmental information and expertise
– encouraging the involvement of individuals and community groups in environmental debate and action

Scottish Refugee Council

Scottish Refugee Council are an independent charity dedicated to provide advice, information and assistance to asylum seekers and refugees living in Scotland. But that’s just part of the story: We also campaign for political change, raise awareness about issues that affect refugees; and we work closely with local communities and organisations.

We play a leading role in policy development and campaign on refugee issues to ensure that Scotland plays a full role in meeting the UK’s legal and humanitarian obligations under the 1951 United Nations Convention on Refugees.

New Internationalist

New Internationalist is for people seeking an independent, intelligent and international perspective. Our magazine explores current global issues with thought, depth and insight, to give you the complete picture. We exist to report on issues of world poverty and inequality; to focus attention on the unjust relationship between the powerful and the powerless worldwide; to debate and campaign for the radical changes necessary to meet the basic needs of all; and to bring to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.

Unison Scotland

UNISON is Scotland’s biggest and liveliest trade union, representing 150,000 members delivering public and related services across Scotland. We believe decent, accessible and accountable public services are vital to everyone, and international solidarity and links with unions overseas is central to our work.

NIDOS

NIDOS is a network of international development organisations based in Scotland. We aim to strengthen the contribution of Scottish organisations to reducing inequality and poverty worldwide. Our members tackle poverty with communities around the world and raise awareness of international development issues in Scotland; we help our members to become more effective and as a network to have greater influence on the government policies that affect the communities with whom they work.

Families Outside

Families Outside is the only national charity in Scotland that works solely to support the families of people affected by imprisonment. They work to mitigate the effects of imprisonment on children and families – and consequently to reduce the likelihood of reoffending – through support and information for families and for the people who work with them.

Water Witness International

Water Witness International is a charity based in Edinburgh which works to improve the way in which rivers, streams, lakes and aquifers are managed.

We carry out targeted research and advocacy to deepen our understanding, share knowledge and ensure accountability to ensure a fair, secure and sustainable water future for all.
