Grassmarket Community Project supports people through transitions in their lives and re-connects the disengaged.

It has been developed in partnership by Greyfriars Kirk (Church of Scotland) and the Grassmarket Mission and takes an innovative approach to creating community and providing sanctuary and support to participants, many of whom are amongst the most vulnerable of our citizens. Through mentoring, social enterprise, training and education in a nurturing environment, the Project develops skills which enable participants to develop to their full potential and move away from cycles of failure.
