Youth projects

We’re all about creating ‘Better homes, better lives’. We support community projects which transform lives and make a difference to people living in our areas.

Dunedin Canmore Youth Projects is a joint initiative between Dunedin Canmore Housing and City of Edinburgh’s Community Learning & Development service.

It was developed in conjunction with partners in Gorgie, Dalry, Oxgangs, Moredun, Hyvots and Gracemount areas of Edinburgh. Services range from youth cafes, street work, employability support and environmental projects.

We're able to help so many young people thanks to the support of our partners. Our funders include:
