Vulnerable & Disabled
All Together Edinburgh is a unique organisation providing training opportunities for adults with learning disabilities. Trainees have opportunities to gain confidence, work skills and a qualification in the All Together charity shop/training centre, Leith.
From our Flavour and Haver Cook School, now a food production kitchen, we are responding to the COVID-19 crisis by offering free cooked meals delivered to vulnerable/elderly/ isolated people and families in the community. We also provide meals for NHS staff in Edinburgh as well as people in temporary accommodation.
Managed on behalf of NHS Lothian, the gardens provide opportunities for people to grow their own food, to build community and to keep active within the grounds of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital in Morningside.

The Grassmarket Community Project supports people through transitions in their lives and re-connects the disengaged. They run four social enterprises through the project: their successful wood workshop GrOW, creating bespoke pieces of furniture from recycled wood; a purpose-designed conference and event space; a cafe and catering service and the manufacture of tartan items including their very own “greyfriars” tartan.
We are a social work organisation that believes in early intervention. This means working with children and families before problems / issues become entrenched.
We use our experience of working with ‘hard to reach’ individuals to provide qualifications and training which are Trauma Informed and accessible. Delivered by experts, informed by our members. Every penny raised through our Learning Centre goes back into providing frontline services, for those who need them most.
The Big Issue is a weekly publication sold by homeless and vulnerably housed individuals who buy the magazine for £1.25 and sell it to the public for £2.50, keeping £1.25 for each magazine they sell, providing an opportunity to earn a legitimate income and an alternative to begging.
Looking for something different to do with the kids on Sunday? We’re open to the general public every Sunday Funday – your chance to share in The Yard magic. All families are welcome at The Yard Edinburgh to play in our adventure playground, get messy in our art room, roll about on the soft play, build a castle in the sandpit, ride bikes or just get outside and run around. Our opening hours are 10am to 4pm.
Tiphereth sells compost and firewood, which supports the life and work of our members; adults with learning disabilities and autism. All our proceeds go directly back into our community. The community provides a variety of day services, meaningful work and residential care homes.
