Description

EDG is a voluntary organisation committed to the principles of inclusion and equality.

Great ideas for a change! We are a development agency working to promote community inclusion.

We use person centred planning, group work, community building and training to achieve our aims. We strive to be an innovative and creative organisation. We work in close partnership with people who have a learning difficulty and their families.

​Edinburgh Development Group was set up in 1991. Since then, our work has constantly evolved to keep up with (and often ahead of!) the times. We still mainly work with people who have learning difficulties and their families, but we also now work more widely with community groups, including others who may feel at risk of marginalisation.

We believe in working alongside people rather than doing 'to' or 'for'. Some people we have worked with in the past have become colleagues and advisers to us, lending further credibility to our work and training.

Lothian buses: 21, 14, 30, 42 and 2 go close to our office.
