In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

Every August a team of intrepid volunteers campaign on the streets of Edinburgh asking festival goers for their support for an Amnesty campaign. They’re festival volunteers - FestiVols!

Previous campaigns have focussed on Venuezelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, Iranian cartoonist Atena Farghadani and Chinese poet Liu Xia.

FestiVols also help us review fringe shows for the Freedom of Expression Award and let festival goers know about Amnesty’s other festival activities. They are ambassadors for us, talking to people from dozens of different nations and backgrounds, who come to Edinburgh to celebrate art, creativity, culture and freedom of expression.
