The Grassmarket Community Project is a charity providing a unique blend of support and a nurturing environment for people who feel disengaged or marginalised. Every penny made by our various social enterprises directly benefits our work with vulnerable adults, and allows us to continue developing their skills and confidence in a welcoming community environment.
