Description

The Ripple, side by side with local people, is improving the quality of life for all ages in the community by helping people to help themselves.

Started by local people, the Ripple harnesses the skills and enthusiasm of its dedicated volunteers to provide a wide range of well-used services in our community of Restalrig, Lochend & Craigentinny. Much of these areas are amongst the most deprived in Scotland and our community faces the challenges that poverty, health and social inequalities bring.

The key to all that we do is the involvement of our wonderful team of volunteers of all ages and abilities who, alongside our small staff team, contribute so much to making life here better for everyone. Many project users have gone on to become volunteers and provide the help for others that they found here themselves – for us that is the true impact of the Ripple effect.

OUR PURPOSE

To tackle poverty and inequality by responding to local priorities, circumstances and needs in a sustainable way by helping the people of Restalrig, Lochend and Craigentinny to help themselves.
